Abstract
Translational and applied genomics drives clinical genomics, including personalized medicine, which includes pharmacogenomics. The term is often used to mean different things. The field will benefit from a clear definition and consistent and coherent use of the term. Historically, applied research was considered a distinct activity, namely R&D, from basic and pre-clinical research. This distinction is outdated, as translational research now extends functional science to include the use of ?Omics? to capture the dynamism of biological processes and environmental exposures. With this new orientation translational omics incorporates longitudinal data generated by the ever more quantified individual. Systems thinking, big data and predictive analytics, real time monitoring and patient/consumer participation at all points of the lifecycle are, now, part of translational and applied genomics. As such the opportunity to develop high impact solutions based on research focused on greater relevance to human health exists. Increasing reciprocal data and knowledge sharing with researchers in less resourced areas of the world can promote greater sharing of the benefits of genomic advances and personalized medicine. In this way, greater equity may be achieved.
