Whole genome sequencing - CentoGenome®
Whole genome sequencing (WGS) provides the most comprehensive genetic testing available for the detection of rare diseases. It identifies more different types of DNA sequence variation and offers greater sensitivity than any other technology available. It is the superior way to diagnose genetically complex and undiagnosed diseases with the highest level of certainty.

CentoWebinar on demand - A journey to the future: whole genome sequencing for the diagnosis of heterogeneous genetic disorders
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.
CentoWebinar on demand - How whole genome sequencing is changing the status quo of medicine November 2016
WGS identifies nearly all changes in a patient’s DNA by sequencing the entire coding and non-coding regions of the genome and provides detailed information on the thousands of genes involved in normal growth and development and all of the ‘silent’ genome regions simultaneously.
"The ability to discover genetic variants in a patient runs far ahead of the ability to interpret them. Databases with accurate descriptions of the causal relationship between the variants and the phenotype are valuable since these are critical tools in clinical genetic diagnostics. Here, we…
In this webinar you will learn the last insights in oncogenetics testing and how CENTOGENE gene panels can support you to assess the risk of a patient to develop an inherited cancer.
