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 an important role in complex human diseases.

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

CLIA-compliant whole exome sequencing (WES) is also available for clinical researchers.
