Future healthcare

In the future, doctors and scientists hope to use our genetic information to diagnose, treat, prevent and cure many illnesses. Genes are instructions, which tell your body how to make all the proteins it needs to survive and grow. By identifying each of these proteins, scientists hope to better understand how your body works, and what is happening when it doesn't work properly. They hope this knowledge will eventually lead to more effective medicines and treatments.

In the future, doctors and scientists may use information from DNA chips like these to diagnose, treat, prevent and cure many illnesses.
