Precision medicine has become quite the catchphrase. In essence, it is an approach towards embracing medical therapy that is precise for the individual. One strategy relies on the patient’s genome. This entails pinpointing DNA mutations and proteins on patient biopsy samples using molecular diagnostics, as the same disease can have diverse causes in different patients. Such knowledge then leads to targeted therapy effective at the molecular level.
