Abstract

The administration of medicine has improved enormously over the years, but the completion of the human genome sequence at the start of the 21st century is now rapidly ushering in a new era within medicine. With genome kits available online and holiday sales on human genome sequencing the ability to sequencing one's genome is rapidly changing the face of medicine and has led to the promise of 'personalized medicine'. This IQP attempts to look at the impact that the revolutionary field of genomics is having on the administration of medicine.
