New journal article and films highlight progress in genomics

Last updated: 5th October 2020

The power and pitfalls of applying genomics in clinical genetics today are explored in a newly-published piece in the Royal College of Physicians’ Clinical Medicine journal.

Professor Katrina Tatton-Brown and Dr Katherine Josephs of St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust have released an article that explores the use of genomic medicine in healthcare today and features five case studies and accompanying films funded and co-produced by the Genomics Education Programme. As genomics increasingly becomes part of routine practice, this article and series aims to demonstrate its potential value as well as some of the challenges of dealing with genomic data. These films are some of the many educational resources available from the Genomics Education Programme.
