Categories of Analysis Panels

Analysis Panels are collections of genes that affect your risk for developing a certain condition or disease. Panels are filtered into categories for easier viewing. You can select individual panels by condition or select comprehensive panels that encompass all of the panels in a category.

What is it & Why to buy?

Your ‘Exome’ is the entirety of your exons or ‘coding’ DNA, which is where all your proteins are made from. This type of your DNA only makes up 1 – 2% of your whole genome, but it currently contains more than 80% of the known disease-causing variants. In this way, though whole exome sequencing is less comprehensive than whole genome sequencing, if you know what you are looking for it may be cheaper to go this route.

By sequencing your exome you can decipher where there are differences in your DNA in comparison to others – this could be the difference in your hair color, your tolerance to certain foods, or even your likelihood to develop a rare disease.

Exome sequencing is available to help you understand your risk of disease and recognize what you may pass onto your kids.

Whole Exome Sequencing Advantages

Panels are limited by present day gene associations and focused on single categories of diseases.

Analysis can be customized to organ systems of interest to the client and physician.

Recommended when patients are presenting with symptoms that are observed in multiple disease profiles or a complex combination of phenotypes.
