Solving the diagnostic riddle: Diagnosing heterogeneous genetic disorders with whole exome sequencing

Most of the disease-causing mutations that science has been able to identify so far are located within the exons. Whereas most genetic tests focus on a single gene or on a set number of predetermined genes, a whole exome sequencing test examines thousands of genes simultaneously.

CentoXome®, CENTOGENE’s whole exome sequencing service, offers a fast and cost-effective one-step solution which involves sequencing the entire coding region.

Webinar content:

  • Introduction to whole exome sequencing
  • Demonstration of “how”, “why” and “when” to use whole exome sequencing
  • Usage of HPO terms for patient/syndrome clustering
  • Clinical case examples
  • Understand why using our whole exome sequencing service (CentoXome®) will support you to increase your diagnostic rates
