Genomic explorations into the heritable genetic basis of the interindividual differences in drug response have recently started. The most comprehensive approach utilized so far has been the application of genome-wide association studies (GWAS) to patients phenotyped with a variety of clinical endpoints. Using oncology as the case model, this presentation will describe 1) the current status of GWAS in oncology, with a focus on heritable markers, 2) the journey of finding associations that have a plausible biological and mechanistic basis, 3) the clinical implications of improving therapies in oncology by using heritable genetic information.
