The Promise of Whole-Exome Sequencing

By AJ Montpetit AJ Montpetit (@ajmontpetit)

Until recently, polygenic (complex) diseases were beyond the capacity of first-generation sequencing, but next-generation sequencing (NGS) in making exploration of genetic etiology of complex diseases a possibility for the first time. NGS is a rapidly growing area of genomics and gene sequencing, and the rapid changes hold more promise for exome decoding than ever before. […]
