Mapmygenome Launches Lung Cancer and Nicotine Dependence Genetic Test
Ms. Anu Acharya, CEO of Mapmygenome, said “Our genetics-based lung cancer and nicotine dependence test is the culmination of requests from several key members of the medical community. This is our way of saying No to tobacco and Yes to oxygen.”
