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.

    Watch our webinar, where Dr. Aida M. Bertoli-Avella, Head of Research Data Analysis, Dr. Volha Skrahina, Vice Director Clinical Studies, and Dr. Selen Zülbahar, Clinical Project Manager & Team Leader (EHA Project Lead) discuss about Hereditary Angioedema.

  • Novel Causes for Heart Malformations

    An ever-increasing number of genes have been linked to heart malformations. For ADAMTS19, the most recent addition to this list, a querying of CENTOGENE’s well-curated database - CentoMD® - identified three patients that carry three different pathogenic variants. This genetic spectrum, along with a…

  • Manifestation and Progression of an Ultra-Rare Disorder

    Rarity is a major obstacle for comprehensively understanding certain genetic disorders, and thus the availability of case reports is critical. The disease course of a patient, who had been diagnosed at CENTOGENE with an ultra-rare condition termed ‘Congenital Disorder of Deglycosilation,’ was…

  • Consanguinity and Recessive Disorders

    High consanguinity is associated with a high prevalence of recessive genetic disorders. CENTOGENE recently contributed to a study which confirmed this notion in Arab communities in Israel. Whole exome sequencing identified causative homozygous variants in >50% of patients with neurological…
