Our genes contain ample information about the risk of disease and treatment success that will allow your doctor a timely intervention for disease prevention or treatment optimization for an existing disease.
Every person has several trillions small cells which, together, form the tissues of our body. Each cell has a nucleus, in which there are about 30,000 different genes, controlling a wide variety of properties and mechanisms of our body. There are, for example, genes that determine the color of our eyes, genes that control what height we reach, genes that are responsible for the digestion of certain food, and genes that are responsible for the function of the nerve cells in our brain. As a whole, the genes form the blueprint of our own individual body.
