Global Genomics Personalized Health Market: Overview
Personalized genomics refers to a specialized sub-segment of the field of genomics that is concerned with the sequencing and analysis of an individual’s genome for identification of the probability of acquiring a disease or determining trait expressions. The genotype of the individual is identified with the help of techniques such as single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) analysis, next-generation sequencing (NGS), full genome sequencing, and partial genome sequencing.
The field of personalized genomics has significantly evolved in the past few years and the expertise in this field is playing a key role in the development of the fields of predictive and personalized medicines. Owing to the recent developments in the area of data analytics and gene sequencing techniques, genetic testing has also become affordable and the applications of personalized genomics are rising at an encouraging pace. In the next few years, genomics personalized health is expected to transform into a highly lucrative market owing to these developments.
