Abstract

This report is intended to highlight the relevance of genomics (the study of genomes) for health care worldwide, with a particular focus on its potential for improving health in developing countries.

This new field, however, presents a series of highly complex scientific, economic, social and ethical issues which must be taken into account if the genomic revolution
