Why is Whole Genome Sequencing important?

Whole Genome Sequencing is the only method that reads your entire DNA, end to end.
With any other sequence, 99% of your genetic data is not considered. DNA apps that analyze parts outside of the exome will only work when paired with a Whole Genome Sequence.

What is whole genome 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 of your body. From your height & weight, to the color of your eyes, to how quickly you age and even to your choice in partners. A Whole Genome Sequence reads each of these 6 bn. letters one by one, and gives you a complete view of how your body works. Using this information, apps in our marketplace can give you unique insights, from lifestyle suggestions that help you live healthier and feel better in your own skin, to discovering conditions that can be prevented so you stay healthier for longer.

Counting to 6 billion,
one nucleotide at a time

For every Whole Genome Sequence, we perform a base-by-base reading of the genome, not just once, but 15 times.
This 15x (fold) multiplication means that we read each nucleotide approx. 15 times in order to be sure that we have read it correctly.
This allows us to build a crystal-clear image of you.
