"With chapters from many of the world's leading authorities, this book from Duke's Institute for Genome Sciences & Policy gives us a remarkably comprehensive and thorough introduction to the field of personalized medicine. Anyone who will participate in this transformation of medicine -- from students to practicing physicians to scientists at the forefront of genetics and genomics to business executives and CEOs -- will find these volumes a great resource." G. Steven Burrill CEO, Burrill & Company San Francisco, CA "With genetic discoveries being published weekly, and increasing efforts to translate genomics to the clinic, there is a pressing need to educate medical students, physicians ad policy-makers on the emerging discipline of genomic medicine. This valuable book is first of its kind, offering a comprehensive overview of the field's foundations, applications to each area of medicine, and translation into clinical medicine and policy." David Altshuler MD, PhD, Professor of Genetics and Medicine, Harvard Medical School, Massachusetts General Hospital "This extraordinary text contains the foundation of knowledge which will allow a completely new era in medicine to bloom. A must-read for every practitioner - from primary care physician to subspecialist - so as to optimally practice their art. This is the comprehensive user's manual for the genome in the clinical setting." Dietrich Stephan, Ph.D., Co-founder and Chief Science Officer, Navigenics
