Precision medicine is a novel medical modality based on genome sequencing, bioinformatics and big data science. The studies regarding tuberculosis always concentrated on the bacteria and host in the setting of precision medicine. This review mainly introduces the application of precision medicine in the diagnosis and treatment of tuberculosis. The limits of the Chinese studies with respect to precision medicine in tuberculosis are also discussed. Moreover, the article predicates its future development.
