Genome Sequencing

Clinical Whole Exome Sequencing (CLIA/CAP)

WES is one of the most comprehensive tools available for detecting rare diseases and associated variants in an individual’s DNA. Whole Exome includes all the protein coding regions in the human genome (approximately 20,000 genes), which is believed to cover > 85% of known and potential disease-causing genetic variants.
