Genetics and Your Gut – The Fascinating Field of Genomic Medicine and the Microbiome

Medicine is in the midst of a sea change.

The Human Genome Project was completed in 2003.

When this project was complete, scientists had mapped our entire genetic code – the very blueprint of the human body.

Since then our understanding of genomics has exploded.

Genomics involves understanding our genes and the various ways they work together and are turned on and off and how that influences our development, functioning and health.

It’s complicated stuff but so fascinating.
