Veritas Genetics MyGenome

Veritas Genomics has launched myGenome, which the company claims is the world's first whole genome for less than $1,000, including interpretation and genetic counseling. Veritas first made $999 whole genome sequencing available to nearly 5,000 participants in the Personal Genome Project at Harvard Medical School. Veritas myGenome sequencing is performed in a CLIA laboratory, includes genetic counseling for clinically relevant conditions, and requires a physician order. The company said it is building a platform for myGenome that will include a secure digital report and app, access to a patient's genome data, on-demand genetic counseling, lifestyle-relevant genetic information, access to physicians, and omics data integration. This service is currently available for pre-orders in the US and other countries will be added in the coming months, the company said.
