Today there are millions of patients suffering from wrongly or undiagnosed genetic diseases because the best technology has not been applied. Although in certain cases tests like single variant testing, panel testing or microarrays are sufficient to identify the cause of a disease, these analyses are ultimately limited and can fail to reveal the full genetic cause. Whole genome sequencing can perform all of these tests and provide analysis of many more variants at the same time all in a single method.
