Advances in precision medicine require high-throughput, inexpensive, point-of-care diagnostic methods with multi-omics capability for detecting a wide range of biomolecules and their molecular variants. Optical techniques have offered many promising advances towards such diagnostics. However, the inability to squeeze light with several hundred-nanometer wavelengths into angstrom-scale volume for single nucleotide measurements has hindered further progress. This limitation has been circumvented by analyzing relative nucleobase content with Raman spectroscopy, in an optical sequencing method. Here, we performed optical sequencing measurements on positively-charged silver nanoparticles to achieve 93.3% accuracy for predicting nucleobase content in label-free DNA k-mer blocks (where k=10), as well as measurements on RNA and chemically-modified nucleobases for extensions to transcriptomic and epigenetic studies. Our high-accuracy measurements were then used with a content scoring database searching algorithm to correctly identify a β-lactamase gene from the MEGARes antibiotic resistance database and confirm the Pseudomonas aeruginosa pathogen of origin from
