About this Research Topic
The last decade has seen tremendous developments in the understanding of the genome and genome variation in human populations. This, together with the long-term realization that treatment decisions and medical advice is currently generic and suboptimal based on group definition of disease, led to a number of initiatives to translate genomic data and other clinical information into models that inform about more precise disease state and clinical decision making. Precision medicine priorities stem directly from the unprecedented developments in genomic research and understanding, but also heavily rely on a number of other components such as Electronic Health Records and phenotyping, data sciences and ethical and legal issues. In this Research Topic we will be inviting leaders in the field to present their perspective in these issues via review or original articles.
Keywords: Precision medicine, Genomic medicine, Clinical decision making, Electronic Health Records
