The human genome is very much like the operating manual to the human body. Rapid Whole Genome Sequencing is a comprehensive test used to decode rare genetic disorders by scouring the entire genetic code for disease-causing variations or errors.
Our laboratory is licensed and certified to perform clinical grade diagnostic testing via rapid Whole Genome Sequencing. The Institute has engineered a process to compress the time needed to sequence, analyze, interpret and deliver test results in as little as three days.
The Institute was founded to build a research-to-bedside genomic sequencing pipeline, with the goal of making genetic screening fast, easy and routine for diagnosing and delivering precision medicine to acutely ill babies and children.
Transforming pediatric healthcare through genomic sequencing requires more than just discovery and innovation. Training and mentoring a workforce in genomic medicine is vital to making genetic testing the standard of care. The Institute offers opportunities for researchers and clinicians to expand their genomic literacy and develop expertise in this burgeoning field.
Institute scientists are striving to refine and accelerate genomic medicine. Their peer-reviewed scientific papers chronicle these advances.
