ABSTRACT
Pharmacogenomics is derived from integration of genomics, medical, pharmacological and biotechnological principles to develop ideal, safe, efficacious drugs with personalized approach based on the genetic variations that exist in all human beings. It plays an important role in design and discovery of “future pharmaceuticals” through understanding of newer and specific target identification, better clinical trials, and individualized consideration of drug response and their genetic interactions. The present article will provide insights on pharmacogenomics and its role in development of target oriented personalized drugs based on genetic polymorphism.
