    Abstract

    Genomic research can link specific molecular genetic information with specific diseases.

    Implications of genomic medicine in general practice include developments in screening and diagnosis, predicting disease prognosis, and optimising preventive and therapeutic care.

    As users or co-producers of genomic information, or as collaborators in genomic research, general practitioners can help realise the potential of advances in genomic research. MJA 2010; 193: 120-123
