NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Color Genomics today launched a sequencing service that will enable researchers to incorporate genetic data into their studies and participants to learn if they harbor genetic variants that increase their risks for certain cancers.

The Color for Research service will take care of sample collection, DNA extraction, and analysis in a CLIA-certified lab, as well as variant interpretation and results reporting. Color will provide analytical support and data summaries to researchers, ship the spit kit to participants' homes, and take care of the consent process.
