Whole genome sequencing
Personalized medicine and individualized care
When we learn what makes up our genetic code, specially trained doctors can use that information to help make diagnoses of genetic conditions. It can also help doctors develop treatment plans that are truly personalized to each patient.
Watch the following story about how gene sequencing helped diagnose one little patient with a condition that affects just a handful of people in the world.
