Frequent visitors to this site know Heidi Rehm, PhD as one of the nation’s leading experts in genetic medicine. As the Director of the Partners Lab for Molecular Medicine and associate professor of pathology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, her work has been covered extensively in the media and on our site.

In a new 6-minute video featured here, she explains what every person needs to know about genome sequencing and breaks down how human genome analysis can answer these four common patient questions:
