Whole Exome Sequencing (WES) is a single genetic test performed in our lab that identifies changes in exons – the protein-coding regions of patient’s DNA collectively known as the exome. By examining the exons of thousands of genes simultaneously, changes related to medical conditions can be quickly identified, leading to rapid and reliable diagnoses.
Understanding a patient’s medical condition through whole exome sequencing can be life changing. This technique can also lead to rapid diagnosis of rare genetic conditions that otherwise could take years. It can uncover the cause of disease and light the path to precision medicine options.
While DNA changes that may cause a genetic disorder are found in the exome, whole exome sequencing testing technology cannot see all genetic changes contributing to genetic conditions, so additional lab tests may be recommended.
