Diagnostic Screenings and Procedures*
You have access to Duke specialists for in-depth review of these health concerns. Some of the commonly requested are:
Whole Genome Sequencing
Whole genome sequencing analyzes the entire genome, meaning it creates a representation of all your DNA nucleotides. This process is different than genotyping which gives a very detailed assessment of specific portions of your DNA- usually those that we know are associated with diseases. The benefit of whole genome sequencing is that as our understanding of the genome changes you would not ever have to have another test done- your DNA can be re-analyzed to look for any newly identified mutations. The downside of whole genome sequencing is that the dataset is very large and complex and may provide unexpected information. For example, it may show a mutation in a gene that is often associated with breast cancer but if there is no family history of breast cancer it might be hard to know what the mutation means for your risk. We are making this test available for those who are interested in knowing what insights your genome might have regarding your risk for a broad array of diseases.
