The automatic page watch recommended deletion of the original article as it appeared to be the introduction to a seminar. However, the original author (Pete.Schroeder@gmx.de) objects to this as "Public Health Genomics" is a scientific discipline and as such a subfield of health sciences. Hence, the automatically generated suggestion for deletion was based on a misunderstanding that I hereby wish to clarify. ps

This article is really bad[edit]

Sorry. It's true.

Really bad tone, not very well referenced, and incorrectly placed.

I've had similar problems with a number of wikipedia's other public health articles (c.f Influenza pandemic which is still very woeful)

This needs to be written in a less condescending, more informative tone. And appropriate in-text references from priamry and secondary sources (i.e. science papers and textbooks respectively).--ZayZayEM 05:55, 11 September 2007 (UTC)
