Cracking the genetic code for better health

Advances in genomics – the study of genes and their functions – are allowing researchers (and eventually physicians) to customize health care and treat individuals according to their genetic makeup. Join Dr. Francois Bernier, an expert in rare diseases, as he explains how genetic sequencing, a “precision medicine” approach, can give physicians more tools to understand what their patients need and to provide highly personalized, precise care.
