As the Human Genome Project nears completion, the next great challenge will be the determination of the function of these nearly 100,000 human genes and the role of each of these genes in health and disease. In his description of the emerging field of "Physiological Genomics", Dr. Allen W. Cowley, Jr., Professor and Chairman of Physiology at the Medical College of Wisconsin, and Past President of the American Physiological Society, discusses the current biological and technological achievements and how the merging of these new tools may spawn yet another scientific revolution and represent the future of integrative physiology.
