Personal Genome Screening
What can you learn from your genome?
Learn about your disease risk
Everyone has some risk of developing lifestyle diseases, like cancer. In fact, nearly 40% of people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. In some cases, hereditary mutations will be the cause. Variantyx Wellness™ screening can identify these risks before cancer or other diseases, including inherited cardiac disorders, develop. In time to take preventative action.
Find out what you may pass on to your children
By definition rare diseases affect only a small number of individuals. However, with roughly 5,000 genetically described rare diseases in total, the overall impact is significant. An estimated 25 million or more people are affected in the US. Variantyx Wellness™ screening can identify whether you are a silent carrier of a rare disease variant, before you pass it on to your child.
Identify which drugs are likely to work for you, or not
Every year billions of prescriptions are written. Yet not all drugs are effective for all individuals. In some cases, genetics plays a role in how likely you are to respond to a particular drug or class of drugs. Variantyx Wellness™ screening can guide the choice of medication or dosage, helping protect against adverse reactions and ineffective treatment.
Why whole genome sequencing?
It covers your entire genome
Many genetic tests use sequencing technologies which look at only a small fraction of your DNA. Exomes cover only 2% of your total DNA while targeted gene panels cover less than 0.02% and SNP arrays cover less than 0.01%. In contrast, whole genome sequencing looks at your entire DNA. That's a huge difference. This difference means that you'll receive:
