Genomics is the study of genes and other information encoded in your genome — the complete set of unique instructions in your DNA.
Every disease also has a genetic component. Through genomics research, we can better understand what our genetic information – and our genetic variations – mean for our health. This is why Garvan scientists use genomics to understand disease, and discover better diagnoses, treatments and preventions.
Our comprehensive guide contains key information:
- What is genomics
- How genomic information is starting to be used in healthcare
- How genomic sequencing works
- Garvan’s research genomics
