NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Nicklaus Children's Hospital is working with Rady Children's Institute and Sanford Health to implement genomic medicine protocols to help diagnose and treat children with unexplained illnesses.

Specifically, Nicklaus will offer whole-genome sequencing to children in two settings.

In addition, children with chronic undiagnosed medical conditions will receive WGS.
