Envision a world in which a handheld device can be used to analyse your persistent cough and suggest
whether you need to go to the hospital urgently. This might be possible in the future with advances in
DNA sequencing and genomics. Soon, sequencing and analyzing DNA may be as easy as taking
photographs. Join Dr Swaine Chen as he shares how genomics can help us better tackle infections (and
beyond) in a smart nation!
