Since the 2001 publication of the draft human genome sequence,1 genomic technologies have revolutionized the conduct of biomedical research. Current studies, many of which would have been unimaginable as few as 5 years ago, are reshaping understanding of the foundations of health and disease in profound and often unexpected ways. Most important to the practicing clinician, advances in genomic technologies are yielding tangible benefits to increasing numbers of patients. Although some have bemoaned the relatively slow pace of translation of genomic discovery to improved health outcomes, it is important to recognize that the intersection of genomic science and health care is in its infancy.2
