Biomedical Discoveries Underpin Good Health

Over the past decade, advances in molecular biology, genetics, and instrumentation have made it possible to address complex questions that earlier seemed far out of reach. We now have the means to look at complex interactions among genes, as well as the interplay between environment and genetic variation.
