NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Between rapid diagnoses of critically ill infants and unwieldy general population screening tests, four National Institutes of Health-funded projects are illustrating both the promise and challenges of sequencing the genomes of newborns.

At Cambridge Healthtech Institute's Molecular Medicine Tri-Conference in San Francisco last month, researchers from the four Newborn Sequencing in Genomic Medicine and Public Health (NISGHT) study sites described progress their institutions have made, challenges, and future plans.
