By quickly and inexpensively sequencing an individual's entire genome, pathologists can identify mutations that cause particular types of cancer. This information helps doctors create custom treatments. This new capability is sometimes called precision medicine or personalized medicine. It has given rise to a new discipline within the medical field, genomic pathology—an area where Yale Medicine has exceptional expertise.
