Abstract:
The strong investments of the last two decades have led to an astonishing pace of discovery in human complex trait genetics. After learning about thousands of genetic risk variants involved in disease etiology, was it worth it? What are the implications for my disease of choice? What should we all do next? With special emphasis on the experience and inferences about the genetics of Inflammatory Bowel disease, I will reflect on the implications about the architecture of complex disease, the prospects for individualized management of health, and some of the main challenges that hinder the use of genomics in the clinic.
