The advent of genomic sciences has provided enormous information on the gene content and its expression in a wide variety of organisms, including the human. This has paved the way for understanding the differences between normal and abnormal cells at the molecular level. This enables molecular characterization of the abnormality due to a wide variety of causes ranging from infection to life style disorders. This new knowledge is being exploited to develop molecular diagnostics, new drugs and vaccines, biopharmaceuticals, gene therapy and stem cell therapy. The future of Medicine would be influenced by Genomic Sciences in a major way.
