A complete how-to-guide for incorporating precision medicine into any type of practice
The Application of Precision Medicine is a practical, succinct, high-yield book for medical professionals who want to learn how genomic medicine can and should be practiced in their specific field of interest.

A major focus of the book is the inclusion of limitations and potential pitfalls at each stage of life.
