Acute care genomics: Rapid rare disease diagnosis on a national scale

This study considered rapid genomic testing for critically ill children with suspected genetic conditions. Professor Zornitza Stark, a lead investigator on the project, discussed the program’s effectiveness and the health economic impact. Kirsten Boggs then talked about the same program from her perspective as a genetic counsellor, discussing the effect that the program has on the families involved.

Genomics technology

The promise of genomics is to help Australians live longer and healthier lives by integrating genomics into the management of health and integrating genomics information and workflows into the health system.

The current focus of genomics is on using individual genetic information to inform tailored healthcare decisions.

Genomics is also expected to have a large impact at the population level in the future. Genomics has the potential to enable earlier diagnosis, improve the identification of the best treatment for the patient, and assist in disease prevention by analysing many genes or the entire genome (comprising all 22,000 genes present in human DNA) at once.
