Hi @Ameena_Altesheh , I also have interest in pharmacogenomics and would like to study this field. Actually, I don't know which will be a suitable recommendation for you because it depends on your need. Although my background is pharmacy, in my undergraduate curriculum, i didn't study it. Therefore, as a beginner in this field, I studied some basic course in Coursera. I already finished one course named: "Genomic and Precision Medicine-University of California, San Franciso" on Coursera. This course provides overall background about genomics, genetic techniques, application in some clinical cases, etc. Now, i am studying the course: "Introduction to Genomic Technology -John Hopkins University"
Hope this can help you 🙂

I could not figure out how to shorten the URL. This topic is of both personal and professional relevance to me.

Hi @Sandsrf . Thank you for your suggestion! ☺ Although maybe there is something wrong with your links, I can't get access. However, I use Google to find based on your suggestion and I found this articles below. Is it the one you want to send us?

Pharmacogenomics of bipolar disorder.Giovanni Severino, Alessio Squassina, Marta Costa, Claudia Pisanu, Stefano Calza, Martin Alda, Maria Del Zompo, Mirko Manchia. Pharmacogenomics. 2013 Apr; 14(6): 655–674. doi: 10.2217/pgs.13.51

Yes Khanh Duong. Thanks! Inconclusive results I think except with lithium, but that was 2013. It is so interesting that many meds (SSRIs) depend on a certain genetic response to work. People tend to oversimplify brain chemistry and leave pharmacogenomics completely out when they talk about psychiatric medication. The true answer is that we often don’t know how a medication will affect an individual. We are still just beginning to understand how chemicals work in our bodies and how these responses can vary from person to person.
