What is Pharmacogenomics?
Our DNA makes us unique. It serves as a manual for our body which contains instructions in the form of genes. Our cells read and interpret these instructions and decide the colour of our hair, our eyes, our height and much more. Different people can have different versions of the same gene, and pharmacogenomics is the study of how these genes affect a person’s respond to specific medications.
