Whole genome sequencing

From MEpedia, a crowd-sourced encyclopedia of ME and CFS science and history

Whole exome sequencing (WGS) is a form of genetic testing that maps all the nucleotides in a person's DNA, offering the possibility of identifying variations in any part of the genome.[1] As of 2017, researcher Liz Worthey's lab charged $6,500 for WGS.[2]
