whole-genome sequencing

Cases with genome and family history reports and controls with family history reports alone had comparable healthcare costs during the six months after receiving their reports.

Applicants will be expected to develop the capacity to conduct up to 200,000 genome-wide assays per year and generate high-quality genotyping and genome sequence data.

The researchers estimated that the newly sequenced late Neanderthals likely split from the lineage leading to much older Altai Neanderthal roughly 150,000 years ago.
