VA Awards Personalis Contract to Provide Clinical Exome Services

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Personalis said today that the US Department of Veterans Affairs has awarded it a contract to provide clinical exome sequencing services.

The Menlo Park, Calif.-based firm will use its ACE Clinical Exome Test, which provides enhanced coverage of 8,000 genes related to disease and coverage of medically important non-coding regions, to identify the causes of patients' genetic disorders.

The VA previously awarded Personalis a contract to provide sequencing and data analysis for 1,000 individuals under its Million Veteran Program.

"This is a great validation of the Personalis difference — the value of our focus on accuracy, sophisticated analysis, and interpretation that we provide for genome and exome sequencing and analysis," Personalis CEO John West said in a statement.
