Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS)

Fast and Accurate DNA and RNA Sequencing in Africa

Whole genome sequencing in Kenya

Whole genome sequencing is done to determine the entire sequence of an organism’s DNA. We can determine the entire DNA sequence of an organism from any biological sample be it blood, cheek swabs, hair, bone marrow, stool, plant leaves, seeds, bacteria, and anything else that has cells containing DNA from human, animal, plant or microbial sources.

Whole Exome Sequencing

Whole exome sequencing in Kenya

Whole exome sequencing is done to determine the sequence of an organism’s DNA that codes for proteins only. 1% of the human DNA consists of exons, DNA that codes for proteins. The aim of whole exome sequencing therefore is to identify genetic variants that alter protein sequences in an affordable manner as compared to whole-genome sequencing. It is an especially useful technique for diagnosis or study of rare Mendelian diseases such as cystic fibrosis.

Applications of WGS & WES

Identification of genetic diseases

To detect and characterize viruses, bacteria, and other microbes and diagnose infectious diseases

Personalized medicine

Pharmacogenomics to determine how individuals react to drugs and use this knowledge to choose and or design the safest and most effective treatment for the individual

Cancer genomics - WGS and WES helps identify genetic mutations such as BCR-ABL important for cancer diagnosis, grouping of tumors into subtypes, and tretament optimization.

Genomic surveillance - WGS and WES help identify new or existing genetic variants in viruses and other microbes and this is useful in the analysis, vigilance and control of pathogens such as SARS CoV2

Microbial genetics - WGS and WES are used to study microbes for purposes of disease control, gene cloning, research, determintion of bacterial drug resistance, and for production of products like antibiotics and harmones.

Expert Bioinformatics Analysis

PhD-level bioinformatics analysis is bundled with the sequencing services and aids in the accurate identification of the following:

  • Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs)
  • Structural variants (SVs) and multiple number variants (MNVs).
  • copy number variants (CNVs)
  • single nucleotide variants (SNVs)
  • Insertions and deletions (indels)
  • We also use cutting edge tools to explore, detect, quantify, and characterize epigenetic modifications.
