In brief: Genome testing

The basis for genome testing came from the sequencing of the human genome.
It is now possible to screen people for the genes that we carry but do not express. It is also possible to determine what genes one carries that metabolize drugs or that one expresses on cellular membranes. Knowing takes some of the guess work out of response to treatments.
