Why is Whole Exome Sequencing important?

The protein-coding genes captured in your exome sequence contain a wealth of information about your body. It may just read 1% of your genome, but exome sequencing cherry picks the best parts, giving you a great understanding of your body.

What is Whole Exome Sequencing?

Your DNA is a code made up of 6 billion individual letters called nucleotides. The exact sequence of nucleotides in your DNA defines every characteristic you have. From your height & weight, to the colour of your eyes, to how quickly you age and even to your choice in partners.

A Whole Exome Sequencing reads a percentage of these letters one by one, and gives you an understanding of what is unique about your body. Using this information, apps in our marketplace can give you insights on lifestyle changes that help you live healthier and feel better in your own skin, or conditions that can be prevented so you stay healthier for longer.

One nucleotide, two nucleotides...
a whole 30 million of them.

For every Whole Exome Sequence we perform a base-by-base reading of the genome, not just once, but 50 times.

This 50x (fold) factor means that we look at each nucleotide 50 times to make sure we identified it correctly, and gives you one of the highest degrees of DNA data accuracy in the industry.
