Chapter 1: Introduction to Genomics Sequencing

At the outset, we defined genome, and explored the initiation of the Human Genome Sequencing project (HGSP). A synopsis of the various national and international experts and pioneers who were involved in the sequencing project were identified. This team eventually became the International Human Genome Sequencing Consortium (IHGSC). The nations that collaborated and contributed toward the successful sequencing were basically the United States (U.S.), France, the United Kingdom, Japan, Italy, and China. The accomplishment of the human genome sequencing was completed at ahead of schedule and by March 25, 2003 the project had accomplished all the publicized objectives of the project. The potential career paths and employment opportunities associated with the human genome sequencing were identified.

Chapter 2: Genomics Application in Public Health

In the transformation of health, through genomics applications in public health, many of the disease burdens which were incriminated for low life expectancies are being scientifically challenged. However, efficient environmental sanitation played a major role in the eradication of hitherto life threatening vector-borne diseases. However, the outbreaks of emerging infectious diseases and chronic and degenerative conditions pose new challenges. Dr. Zerhouni, the former director of the National Institutes of Health meticulously identified the aging phenomenon. Health disparities and emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases and emerging non-communicable (obesity) as the precursors new health problems which demand innovative strategies. He has suggested, as key of the components of the future paradigm, the four Ps which comprise predictive, personalized, preemptive and, participatory techniques to combat national and international public health challenges. This innovative approached is currently being utilized to preempt the onset of many chronic and degenerative diseases.

Chapter 3: Chapter 3 Genomic Epidemiology of Human Papillomavirus (HPV), Prostate Cancer, and Diabetes

Risk factors associated with prostate cancer were explored. The gene chromosomes which code for prostate cancer were discussed. The physical and financial implications of this disease were outlined and the interventions to prevent the onset of this disease were comprehensively discussed. HPV is a major life threatening sexually transmitted infection in United States. The disease is predominantly common among minority ethnic groups. If left untreated, HPV can become life threatening when it converts to cervical cancer. The primary preventive mechanism such as abstinence education and other primary preventive use of condom are known to convert the impact of this disease.

Chapter 4: Global Genomic Response to Neonatal Screening

In the age of genomic science, neonatal screening for sickle cell anemia involves critical ethical legal, social, and financial implications. The screening for early identification of children most likely to face the complications associated with sickle cell disease was designed to enable parents utilize the state of the art scientific curative care to enable their children to live economically productive lifestyle. However, screening must not be used for discrimination and refusal to insure patient with sickle cell disease. The availability of bone marrow transplant and gene-therapies are clinical options to assist at-risk patients
