Rady Children’s Hospital

Miami-based Nicklaus will send patient blood samples to Rady Children's in San Diego for WGS, bioinformatics analysis, and initial clinical interpretation.

Only three out of 10 sequencing workflows detected all variants in a synthetic reference sample, according to a study presented at ACMG.

The team showed that sequencing can diagnose ill babies faster, leading to better outcomes and saving money by reducing unnecessary treatments and procedures.

Faster, Faster!

Rady Children's Hospital researchers aim to get sequencing faster and faster to identify treatments for sick babies, Technology Review reports.

A Rady Children's Institute for Genomic Medicine team has set a Guinness Book of World Record, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Researchers from Rady Children's Institute for Genomic Medicine said sequencing has clinical utility and is cost effective.

Fabric disclosed partnerships with Rady Children's Institute for Genomic Medicine, the Utah Genome Project, and Genomics England's 100,000 Genomes Project.

The partners will work together to develop Alexion's SmartPanel precision medicine platform for use in newborns with rare genetic disorders.

The institute recently launched rapid genome sequencing for critically ill newborns and plans to test genomic sequencing in several programs and clinical trials.
