The Impact of Genetics on Medicine

This issue addresses pharmacogenomics, epigenetics, direct-to-consumer genomic testing, gene therapy, prenatal and newborn screening, and other medical applications of genetics. Commentaries also discuss the social, policy, and ethical issues associated with this technology and the need for health professional education in this area. Original articles describe community perceptions of genomic research and the relation of race and health insurance to long-term risk of mortality among lung cancer patients.
