Are you at risk of developing a health condition caused by a genetic variant?
Do you carry any genetic variants that could be passed on to your children?
Do you have genetic variants that effect how you will respond to medication?We offer clinical whole genome sequencing and counselling to individuals who are interested in improving their current and future health. What does "sequencing your genome" mean?
Whole genome sequencing (WGS) involves analysing DNA which is the genetic material inherited from our parents. Genes are made up of DNA and instruct how the body functions and what it looks like. Everyone contains different variations of these genes, some variants can be advantageous and some can cause harm to our health. In some cases, there is medical advice that can help prevent or reduce the severity caused by a gene variant affecting health risks.
What could I learn?
The type of genetic information that may be returned to you could include:
Which genes will be analysed?
We analyse genes that have been scientifically shown to be associated with genetic conditions that can be managed with medical interventions.
• Metabolic conditions
• Respiratory conditions
• Organ specific or multi-organ conditions such as kidney or liver
• Response to medications (pharmacogenomics)
