The human genome is comprised of more than 3 billion nucleotides  which are the building blocks of our DNA. Within the genome exists valuable information about our genetic make-up that can help make more personalized healthcare decisions. Whole genome sequencing is used to identify genetic variations that may predict or explain a patient’s risk for disease as well as the responsiveness to treatment.
This vital information about your immediate health may allow for  individually-tailored prevention plans to help prevent diseases in your future.
