Genetic research is increasingly focused on identifying the variations of the specific genes in the genome. These variations are what define individual characteristics, including disease states or a statistical propensity for disease. The implications are far-reaching and impact not only the research community, but also the individual patients and the medical providers. Diagnostic tests that detect diseases very early in their progression will provide options for earlier treatments that may improve the patient's quality of life and prognosis by delaying or preventing disease progression or even death. Medical providers will incur major cost savings by avoiding costly late stage disease treatments.
