An article titled "Large-scale whole-genome sequencing of three diverse Asian populations in Singapore" which was published in the Cell Journal, underlies the need for precision medicine.

Under-representation of Asian genomes has hindered population and medical genetics research on Asians, leading to disparities in precision medicine. Over half of the single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) found in Singapore Chinese, Malays and Indians are novel. SNPs are inherent to the genetic population and can account for different disease progressions and responses. This study is important to better understand complex traits and multi-factorial diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular and neurological conditions.
