Start-ups trying to make their mark in the nascent domain of genetic diagnostics. BioSpectrum explores the developments in the field.

Thanks to the Human Genome Project, scientists now have a set of tools that can be readily used to understand the complexity of diseases and their variability in human beings. These tools assist scientists in refining risk prediction and also in evaluating the response to therapies with greater precision. The project has in turn fuelled the diagnostic industry, which was not perceived to be as exciting as therapeutics but is now one-of-the-fastest growing segments of healthcare.
