Whole Exome Sequencing – CentoXome®
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, whole exome sequencing examines thousands of genes simultaneously.

Novel GNB1 Missense Mutation in a Patient with Generalized Dystonia, Hypotonia, and Intellectual Disability
Recently, exome sequencing has extended our knowledge of genetic causes of developmental delay through identification of de novo, germline mutations in the guanine nucleotide-binding protein, beta 1 (GNB1) in 13 patients with neurodevelopmental disability and a wide range of additional symptoms and…
Whole Exome Sequencing in a Rare Disease: A Patient with Anomalous Left Coronary Artery from the Pulmonary Artery (Bland-White-Garland Syndrome)
Anomalous origin of left coronary artery from pulmonary artery (ALCAPA), also known as the Bland-White-Garland syndrome, is a rare congenital abnormality, with an incidence of 1 in 300,000 live births. Herein we report the results of the first whole exome sequencing (WES) of an ALCAPA patient who…
Intraflagellar transport (IFT) is vital for the functioning of primary cilia. We examined a child from a consanguineous family who had short stature, narrow thorax, short hands and feet, postaxial polydactyly of hands, pigmentary retinopathy, small teeth and skeletal dysplasia. This is the first…
Here we report the first human skeletal ciliopathy associated with a nonsense variant in IFT52, encoding an IFT-B core complex protein.
Broadening the Phenotypic Spectrum of Pathogenic LARP7 Variants: Two Cases with Intellectual Disability, Variable Growth Retardation and Distinct Facial Features
In 2012 Alazami et al. described a novel syndromic cause of primordial dwarfism with distinct facial features and severe intellectual disability. Our cases broaden the associated clinical features of the syndrome and contribute to the delineation of the phenotypic spectrum of LARP7 mutations.
