Quoted From:

"Genomics is a newer fieldthe study of the entire human genome (the 3 billion units of DNA across all 23,000 genes). The human genome includes not only the genes that encode proteins, but also the DNA sequences between genes which play other important roles such as turning genes on and off, and determining when and how much they work. Genomics even considers the interrelationships between genes and also how genes interact with environmental factors.Genomic testing involves the analysis of large amounts of DNA sequence dataoften the entire human genometo locate variations that affect health, disease or drug responses. The field of genomics has been made possible by technical advances in DNA sequencing as well as computational biology."
