Genomic Medicine in Developing Countries and Resource-Limited Environments

"Even though the translation of genomic discoveries into clinic and public health has gained momentum, major discrepancies still occur between developed and developing/resource-limited countries. Genomic medicine is implemented at a different pace not only due to limited resources but also beca...
