The cost of the Clinical Exome Sequencing test at DNA Labs India is ₹22,000.
What is Clinical Exome Sequencing?
The Clinical Exome is a powerful tool used to help identify the cause of health and developmental problems from your DNA. Every disease which is identified and studied can be detected using clinical exome sequencing. The exome is part of your genome, an entire DNA or genetic information containing different body functions.
The exome is only a small portion of your genome which is about 1%, but changes in your exome can affect up to 85% of your health. Exome sequencing aims to identify changes which are known as ‘variants’ or ‘mutations’, that may be responsible for genetic conditions affecting health and development.
The number of variants in any one person’s exome is very large mostly in the thousands. Most variants do not cause health problems, however, some are known or highly suspected to affect health.
The benefits of Clinical Exome Sequencing
The exome sequencing uses a technology called Next Generation Sequencing or NGS. Unlike a traditional genetic test that often looks at one specific gene, NGS can test many genes at one time. This is useful when a patient may have a variant or mutation in more than one gene or has a complex clinical presentation.
What conditions does the test look for?
The Clinical Exome analysis investigates complex health and developmental problem that is suspected to have a genetic cause. In many cases, the clinical exome is used to seek answers for individuals where another testing has failed to determine the cause of their health problems. The Clinical Exome is used by many specialists, like neurologists and geneticists, to investigate specific causes of well-known but poorly understood conditions especially brain malformations or rare and complex genetic disorders.
Genetic variants fall into three categories:
- Pathogenic variants – these are known to cause specific genetic conditions.
- Benign variants – are unlikely to cause genetic conditions.
- Variants of unknown significance – there is no clear evidence about whether these are pathogenic or benign. This class of variants often requires family studies to help determine their clinical significance.
