Decode the CDS

For researchers and clinicians seeking a deeper understanding of the genetic underpinnings of disease, we offer whole exome sequencing (WES). Exome sequencing acts like a magnifying glass on the blueprint of life, the DNA. It zeroes in on the exome, the essential sections of genes that hold the instructions for building proteins.


By focusing on these protein-coding regions, exome sequencing can efficiently identify mutations that might cause hereditary diseases. Compared to analysing the entire genome, this targeted approach offers a streamlined and cost-effective method for pinpointing disease-causing mutations. This valuable tool empowers researchers to unlock the secrets of disease and clinicians to provide more accurate diagnoses and potentially guide treatment decisions.​
