Hughesair (Inflection Point)

Retired physician and air taxi operator, science writer and part time assistant professor, these editorials cover a wide range of topics. Mostly non political, mostly true, I write more from experience than from research and more from science than convention. Subjects cover medicine, Alaska aviation, economics, technology and an occasional book review. The Floatplane book is out there. I am currently working on Hippocrates a History of Medicine and Globalism. Enjoy!

Point of Care Genomic Correlation, the Future

The 23andMe+ Pharmacogenetics Portal, a new resource for healthcare providers - provides point-of-care information based on various test results. Pharmacogenetics reports include: CYP2C19 Drug Metabolism, DPYD Drug Metabolism, and SLCO1B1 Drug Transport. The results are only available for 23andMe+ members, however, that database is growing. Reassuringly, the genomic data-base belongs to the patient so long as the patient wishes to keep it so.
