Much to say — I've been idle here for a few days.
First – this paper in Mayo Proceedings provides a well done overview of the genomics research of the last few years – and how it may be relevant to real-life practicing physicians. It's a primer on genetics, and I agree that it is probably required reading for most of us.
I'll admit that I have not been blown away with the relevance of genomics to my daily life. The residency director of one of the residencies at the Academic Miracle Center here has a habit of telling anyone in the room that all of his residents are required to know genomics in detail "because it will impact their practice so much." I won't say who he is .. but I will say that his residents don't agree with either statement.
