GENEWIZ Exome Sequencing

The exome and untranslated regulatory regions (UTRs) comprise only 1-2 % of the human genome, yet house as many as 85% of disease-related mutations. As a research tool, exome sequencing is a powerful way to investigate common and rare genetic variations that play a role in complex human diseases.

GENEWIZ provides complete solutions for exome sequencing projects from experimental design through advanced bioinformatics analysis.

As an Ion AmpliSeq™ Exome Certified Provider, GENEWIZ offers expedited turnaround time for select projects on the Ion Proton™.
