A team of European researchers has mapped the genome of various strains of gonorrhea, creating a way to identify antibiotic resistance before trying different regimens of antibiotics.
By sequencing DNA gathered from patient samples, the researchers were able to spot individual cases of resistance and to correct faulty lab test results.
While important in itself, the research points to more evidence that genomic testing is revolutionizing medicine in a variety of ways.
