Next Generation Whole Exome Sequencing WES Test Description Next Generation Whole Exome Sequencing WES Most of the disease-causing mutations that science has been able to identify so far are located within the exons. Whereas most genetic tests focus on a single gene or on a set number of predetermined genes, a whole exome sequencing test examines thousands of genes simultaneously. Whole exome sequencing provides a comprehensive outlook on coding genetic variation to a degree that has never been possible before, surpassing traditional methods for the study of common, rare and novel genetic variations, such as SNP arrays or single locus resequencing studies.

Next Generation Whole Exome Sequencing WES TEST DETAILS

What is Whole Exome Sequencing?

WES is a cost effective alternative to Whole Genome Sequencing. The human exome consists of approximately 180,000 exons, which constitutes about 1-2% of the human genome. These exon protein coding regions harbor variants which are much more likely to have severe consequences than those in the remaining 99% of the genome. Instead of incurring the time and cost of sequencing the whole genome, many researchers and clinicians can obtain the decision-making data they need by sequencing the exome. Whole Exome Sequencing can identify genetic variants responsible for:

  • Mendelian diseases such as Huntington’s disease
  • Somatic variants linked to various cancers
  • Diseases such as Alzheimer’s and autism which have an underlying genetic component
  • Influencing an individual’s response to a specific pharmacological regimen

WES provides the right balance of insights and price

  • Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) takes too long, is often cost-prohibitive, and the data needed is usually in the exonic regions
  • Sanger sequencing and microarray are not cost effective for large target regions
  • Targeted pre-defined panels often don’t contain all of the data needed for the project
