Solid Tumor Whole Exome Sequencing

Solid Tumor Whole Exome Sequencing


Exome sequencing mainly refers to the capture and enrichment of exomes and surrounding regions of DNA, followed by the use of next generation sequencing (NGS) to obtain their sequence information, and finally combined with bioinformatics analysis to reveal the association of variants (SNPs/ Indels/SVs/CNVs) with diseases. Whole exome sequencing (WES) is widely applied in the identification of the genetic causes of diseases, especially in tumor cases. Sequencing the DNA coding region of tumor cells not only detects genetic mutations, but also provides information about any developmental delay. According to the study, 85% of known disease mutations are located in protein coding regions (exons), so we can detect a more concentrated target associated with solid cancers by WES.

CD Genomics specializes in disease genomics such as hereditary genetic disorders and cancer. And our rapid NGS workflow will maximize efficient and cost-effective whole exome sequencing service and bioinformatics support for our clients in solid tumors research. Our solid tumor sequencing analysis services are designed to provide you with a molecular landscape of cancer and a new profile of gene mutations.
