Pharmacogenomics and the concept of customizable, personalized medicine promise to change how physicians treat disease and how drug companies develop and market drugs. Intended for scientists and physicians who have a basic understanding of molecular biology, An A-Z Guide to Pharmacogenomics introduces the terms and techniques common to this fast-paced and high-stakes field and explains them in a straightforward, easy-to-understand way.

The impact of pharmacogenomics on medicine will be revolutionary, drawing together a diverse group of scientific disciplines and impacting everything from basic research to the patient's hospital bedside. The terms listed in this A-to-Z guide reflect this diversity of scope, representing basic biology, bioinformatics, diagnostics, and drug discovery.

The pharmacogenomics revolution has already begun -- the FDA recently approved the first genetic test designed to predict an individual's response to a given drug. This guide is a starting point for anyone interested in the technology that will revolutionize medicine and directly impact the health and well-being of millions of people.
