Advances in individual genome sequencing technology and next generation sequencing technology have allowed for widespread research of human genome, which would give us opportunities not only to change our focus from the experience-based Korean medicine including typology and Sasang constitution to the evidence-based Korean medicine but to provide effective tailored medical care and Tang theory.
