|Study of various genes that are involved or associated with drug responses (ex. response to immuno-suppressants, antifungal agents and anticoagulants) and adverse drug reactions (such as severe cutaneousadverse drug reactions, hematotoxicity, renal and hepatotoxicity). Finding genetic markers for prediction of drug response/toxicity and drug hypersensitivity|
