Welcome to the first issue of Clinical Sequencing News — a new GenomeWeb newsletter focused on clinical and diagnostic applications of next-generation sequencing.

Clinical Sequencing News is produced by the editors of GenomeWeb's In Sequence, which has been the go-to source for news on the rapidly evolving sequencing market since 2007. This new publication will deliver the same comprehensive, in-depth reporting that readers have come to expect from In Sequence, but with a particular focus on the nascent clinical sequencing sector.
