What is Whole Genome Sequencing?
Unlike all other genetic tests, whole genome sequencing is exactly that, sequencing of your entire genome. And at Veritas this means sequencing at clinical grade (30X coverage) the gold standard of sequencing quality.
Who is This Test For?
- myGenome is intended for generally healthy adults (18 years and older) who want to be proactive about their health
- These individuals are curious about their disease risks and want to reduce or eliminate these risks. But they also have a fun side and want to discover their ancestral roots and learn about their physical attributes (traits) and wellness.
- Your genome is a resource for life. You can go back to your genomic data at any time to look for additional insights if new medical concerns arise in the future.
