Whole Genome Sequencing

Whole genome sequencing reveals the complete DNA make-up of an organism, enabling us to better understand variations both within and between species.It is one of the major technique used to test genetic disorders.Due to some new or inherited genetic mutations, our genes can cause a disease or increase risk for disease.Whole genome sequencing helps in testing whether the person have a genetic disorder or not and identify unique variations in our genome. During whole genome sequencing, researchers collect a DNA sample and then determine the identity of the 3 billion nucleotide that compose the human genome.In the future, whole genome sequencing may enable everyone to develop a personalized treatment plan.
