Precision medicine is a disruptive innovation with a fast-evolving pace in the healthcare ecosystem. Precision medicine enables precise diagnosis and targeted treatment by considering individual variability in the abnormalities of causative genes and molecular drivers behind biochemical mechanisms. A vast amount of data created by advanced omics technologies is a foundation of precision medicine’s success, and the implications of the findings from these technologies can potentially improve clinical outcomes.
Recent Advances in Molecular and Translational Medicine: Updates in Precision Medicine presents essential information of molecular and translational research in precision medicine, with a specific focus on pediatrics. This book provides an accessible introduction to omics technologies, gives a detailed explanation of bioinformatics workflows to interpret high-throughput omics profiles for molecular diagnosis, and collects some of the cutting-edge research for precise therapeutics. Contributions to the book have been provided by experts in biomedical engineering and clinical practice, thus, bringing an informed perspective to the reader on each topic. The book is a valuable resource for postgraduate students, researchers, data scientists and clinicians interested in precision medicine, as well as researchers in the field of genetics and pediatrics who are interested in understanding the role of precision medicine in clinical practice.
Audience: Postgraduate researchers and professionals in the field of precision medicine and pediatrics; Data scientists working in medical informatics.
