Whole Genome Sequencing

Exploring your DNA to find new answers for you to give powerful insights.

Whole Genome Sequencing

Human whole genome sequencing (WGS) detects the complete genome sequence at one time and provides the most comprehensive collection of an individual’s genetic variation based on the human reference genome. Whole genome sequencing can be applied to human genetics and evolution studies to detect genome-wide genetic variations, pathogenic and susceptibility genes, and to enable genetic diversity and evolution analysis. It can also be applied to translational research to provide information on cancer and disease-associated mutations and is one of the most important approaches of precision medicine.

Why AGCT GENOMICS

AGCT GENOMICS is one of the first Genomics Company to offer Whole Genome Sequencing on a clinical/research basis in effort to maximize clinical diagnostic yield for our clients and patients. Combining superior coverage of the exome (over 98% covered > 20x) with a six week turn-around time, our whole genome sequencing test is designed to maintain the same quality and TAT that clients deserve from an exome sequencing test, while providing access to additional valuable information throughout the genome.

  • Coverage of 30x throughout the entire Genome
  • >98% of the exome is covered at > 20x
  • Complete coverage of over 5,300 disease-associated genes
  • Exon-level deletion duplication coverage included throughout the genome
    • Reliable detection of copy number variants (CNVs) >3 exons in size. Single exon CNVs can also be predicted, but follow-up confirmation is strongly recommended for any events reported less than 3 exons.
