The Role of Genes and Heart Disease Grows: Are we Trapped? No!

Our progress in understanding human genes has been amazing and humbling. About 150 years ago, Gregor Mendel used pea plants to establish some rules of inheritance, and about 50 years ago, Watson and Crick described the double helix of DNA. In 2003, the entire human genome was sequenced. I have had my entire genome sequenced in 2017 and the availability and price is growing.
