Rady Children's Hospital Takeda Pharmaceutical, Rady Children's Partner on Rare Genetic Disease Drug Development The partners will use data derived from whole-genome sequencing to discover and develop treatments for rare child-onset genetic diseases. Pacific Biosciences, Rady Children's Collaborate on Study of WGS-Based Rare Disease Dx The study, already underway, will use PacBio's HiFi long-read sequencing in cases of rare disease where other sequencing approaches did not provide a diagnosis. Parents, Physicians View Genome Sequencing as Useful for Managing Care of Seriously Ill Infants NSIGHT2 researchers surveyed the parents and doctors of sick babies to see how useful they found positive and negative findings from genome sequencing tests. State-Funded Rapid WGS Pilot Improves Outcomes, Saves Costs in Critically Ill California Newborns Premium Based on the results of Project Baby Bear, Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego hopes the State of California will cover rapid whole-genome sequencing going forward. San Diego Institutes Launch Coronavirus Testing, Research Initiative The effort aims to screen for SARS-CoV-2 in the San Diego community and study the virus' genome to better understand how it is transmitted.
