Genome sequencing can break open the cell membranes that exist in a sample of your patient’s blood or saliva […]

Clinical Whole Exome Sequencing

What is Whole Exome Sequencing? If you’re trying to find a cause for your patients’ symptoms, clinical whole exome sequencing (WES) can reveal the origins of a genetic trait or illness. How does it work? An exon, or “expressed region,” is the coding part of DNA and ultimately gets translated to protein. Using saliva, blood, […]
