This Special Issue of the Journal of Personalized Medicine titled “Genomic Medicine for Cardiovascular Disease” aims to highlight the state-of-the-art for genomic medicine in clinical cardiovascular practice, highlighting innovative and novel approaches. Papers may address use of electronic health records for genomic discovery and implementation, digital tools for genomic medicine including clinical decision support, genomic medicine in low-resource-constrained settings, use of whole genome/exome sequencing such as in diagnostic odysseys, variant interpretation and functional assays, cascade testing, polygenic risk scores for cardiovascular disease and their integration into clinical practice, population screening, and team-based genomic medicine programs. Communications, reviews, and original articles are welcome.
