We are uncertain whether SARS will come again but have been carrying out research programs in
diagnostics, viral genome analysis and vaccination, relevant to the disease and disease-causing

further investigation in the origin of the virus and vaccination strategies. Some of results in the
diagnostics and vaccination will also be discussed briefly.
