Baylor Genetics Clinical Whole-Genome Sequencing for Genetic Disorders
Feb 05, 2019
Baylor Genetics has launched clinical whole-genome sequencing for the diagnosis of rare genetic and inherited disorders. The test covers various mutation types throughout the genome, including single-nucleotide variants, indels, copy number variants, structural variants, regions of absence of heterozygosity, and repeat expansion variants. It requires a sample from patient and parents and has a turnaround time of 8 to 10 weeks.
