Review Series - July 27, 2017

Precision Hematology

Edited with an introduction by Dr Benjamin L. Ebert, we present a series of reviews focused on precision hematology. This series presents the state of the art usage of genomic techniques for the identification of inherited and acquired mutations guiding the diagnosis and treatment of hematologic disorders, the methods for gathering and storing genomic data, and the ethical considerations in such genomic testing.

Dr. Ebert and Dr. Staudt discuss some highlights of this review series.
