Human Whole Genome Sequencing
An Accessible, Cost Effective Sequencing Solution to Enable Rapid Discovery with Industry Leading Turnaround Times.
Whole genome sequencing detects the complete human genome sequence at one time and provides the most comprehensive collection of an individual’s genetic variation based on the human reference genome. The microarray-based genotyping studies have gradually moved to whole genome sequencing with the falling costs of sequencing technology.
Whole genome sequencing can be applied to human genetics and evolution studies to detect genome-wide genetic variations, pathogenic and susceptibility genes, and to enable the genetic diversity and evolution analysis. It can also be applied to translational research to provide information on cancer and disease associated mutations and is one of the most important approaches of precision medicine.
