Beginner’s Guide To Genomic Medicine
Genomics studies the interactions of the environment and our DNA. With 20,000–25,000 genes that contain over 3 billion base pairs of DNA, our genome provides the blueprint for everything that happens in our bodies.
Genomic testing starts with collecting a small DNA sample with a simple cheek swab. At our certified laboratory, we detect and evaluate small genetic variations called SNPs, or single nucleotide polymorphisms. We carefully select the SNPs that are backed by scientific studies, and have actionable steps you can use to improve your health. We offer comprehensive nutritional genomic and pharmacogenomic tests. Each test analyzes and translates large amounts of genomic data into personalized and actionable information.
Genomic tests can only be ordered by approved clinicians. If you are looking to benefit from one of our genomic tests, please contact us for providers in your area or work with us through our virtual Genoma Wellness Center.
The data inherent in genomic testing provides an unparalleled depth of information about a person’s health, enabling more precise insight into contributing factors, and tailored prevention and treatment strategies that are based on your unique biochemistry and genetic predispositions.
Genoma International offers many learning opportunities, providing information about the benefits of genomic testing, how genomic data is translated into actionable interventions, and how this information can positively impact your health outcome.
