Children's Mercy

Children's Mercy Hospital is poised to update its rapid whole-genome sequencing protocol, known as STAT-seq, in an effort to bring the time needed for genome sequencing and analysis down to around 24 hours.

Children's Mercy Hospital has launched a next-generation sequencing-based test that assesses the coding regions of 514 genes implicated in more than 750 severe childhood-onset diseases.

Children's Mercy Hospital has launched its Targeted Gene Sequencing and Custom Analysis, or TaGSCAN, test to diagnose pediatric genetic diseases.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics in Kansas City said today that it has received a $1 million grant to fund its Center for Pediatric Genomic Medicine, which aims to use genome sequencing in the clinical care of newborns.

As a first step toward implementing clinical whole-genome sequencing in a neonatal intensive care unit, researchers from Children's Mercy Hospital have published a proof-of-principle study demonstrating that their protocol can diagnose genetic disease in newborns.
