Effect of WGS on clinical management in acutely ill infants

Whole-genome sequencing (WGS) shows promise as a first-line genetic test for acutely ill infants. However, before wide-spread adoption and implementation, […]

WGS unveils rare structural variants associated with schizophrenia

The genetic basis for schizophrenia has long been studied since the first major study was released over 70 years ago, […]

WGS – The future of consumer genomics

With the falling cost of genome sequencing, it comes as no surprise that there is a growing interest in expanding the availability and accessibility of genomics via consumer testing. Now, Nebula Genomics has entered the market by launching a comprehensive at-home test that analyses the whole genome for just $299.
