Personal Genomics

Personal genomics is an area of genomics focusing specifically on the sequencing and analysis of one person’s genome, and then giving them their genomic information.


Our lab provide clinical-grade privacy-focused personal genomics service using Whole Genome Sequencing, Whole Exome Sequencing, and Genotyping Array technologies. We can sequence and analyze your genome, and deliver all the genomic information back to you. The full sequencing of a human genome at 30x coverage produces over 100 gigabytes of raw DNA data (over 300 gigabytes of data at 100x coverage). We give you access to this large amount of DNA sequencing data so that you can explore it on your own. You can also bring your data to your physician or genetic counselor for clinical analysis.
