During the pandemic, smart algorithms have also proven their worth in assisting healthcare professionals to distinguish those who could have been infected with COVID-19 from those with less threatening conditions.
From microbiome analyses to whole-genome sequencing, such at-home lab tests provide crucial, personalised health information in a private and convenient manner; while lifting off additional pressure on healthcare institutions.
