This chapter briefly reviews the use of genomewide screening for early detection, treatment, and prevention and the utility of genome-based biomarkers as a tool for precision medicine and its application to population and integrative preventive medicine. Advances in technology have made genomic screening more affordable and widely available, and both our understanding and the value of testing grow as more data is collected. Even more recently, the growing availability of epigenetic testing, methylation and ROS-associated molecular signatures are providing more insight into dynamic aspects of the human genome and how lifestyle and IPM change affect the expression of the genome. Early adoption of precision medicine in oncology offers a model that should be expanded into wider areas of treatment and prevention.
