Potential of rapid whole-genome sequencing in critically ill infants

28 abril 2015

The early results of the clinical usefulness of rapid whole-genome sequencing in neonatal and pediatric intensive care units (NICUs and PICUs) has been presented by researchers. The STAT-Seq test helped diagnose a genetic disease in more than one half of 35 critically ill infants tested, compared to just nine percent with standard genetic tests.
