Extraordinary developments in genomics research, technologies and ensuing knowledge are creating the potential of astonishing changes in both the healthcare and the life sciences sectors. For instance, next generation sequencer technology is technically progressing at a very rapid pace making it multiple folds faster than five years ago. The genomics innovations include the following: 1) Adoption of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) ? based testing such as Whole Exome and Genomic Sequencing (WES & WGS) in clinical service as a diagnostic test including so-called direct-to-consumer genetic testing services, 2) Moving toward single cell sequencing study in heterogeneous cells and/or genetic make-ups, 3) Evolution of NGS ? based RNA sequencing field, i.e., measuring the gene expression changes along with non-coding RNA (Whole Transcriptome Sequencing), 4) Pharmacogenomics, and 5) Circulating Tumor Cells (CTCs), circulating cell-free DNA (cfDNA), and mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) as non-invasive real-time circulating blood biomarkers surrogates for tissues. This paper looks at the impact of clinical genomics disruptive innovations on the healthcare system in order to provide better diagnosis and treatment. The genomic trends will not only transform point-of-care but also it will further facilitate progression towards personalized medicine to offer tailored and/or targeted treatment to patients, i.e., personalized therapy with the promise to improve patient?s lives. A special reference will be made to the Gulf region genome projects and personalized healthcare plans for ultimately to offer better prevention, diagnosis and treatment for its population. In particular, Qatar?s efforts in the genomic medicine area will be emphasized including the private Applied Biomedicine Initiative (ABI).
