Because the development of evidence-based guidelines is a moving target, the types of translation research can overlap and provide feedback loops to allow integration of new knowledge. Although it is difficult to quantify how much of human genomics research is T1, we have estimated that no more than 3% of published research focuses on T2 and beyond (28). 2 Human genome epidemiology and the phases of genomics translation: examples and application Phase Notation Types of Research Examples T1 Discovery to candidate health application.
