Decoding the human as well as many viral and bacterial genomes in 2003 has opened up new possibilities for diagnostics not only in medicine but also in agriculture and environmental protection. Concrete ideas for medical diagnostic procedures are born mainly from the deeper and deeper understanding of the molecular causes of diseases. This contributes significantly to the development of new, more sensitive, and often quicker methods of diagnosis. The disease of cancer can now be detected much earlier and therefore treated more successfully.

Europe should take a leading role in the field of development of such innovative methods of diagnosis.
