Rapid Whole Genome Sequencing (rWGS) has proven to provide much faster diagnoses than traditional clinical testing, including clinical Whole Exome Sequencing (WES) and standard Whole Genom...
The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of rapid next generation sequencing (NGS, such as whole genome sequencing1) with current practice to provide diagnostic or prognos...
To assess the indications and diagnostic efficiency of whole genome sequencing (WGS) in pediatric patients with unexplained intellectual disability/developmental delay, multiple congenital...
The VetSeq Study is a pilot intervention study exploring the feasibility of integrating genome sequencing into clinical care at the VA Boston Healthcare System.
Syphilis is an important sexually transmitted infection. There has been an epidemic of syphilis amongst men who have sex with men in the United Kingdom in the last decade. Early infection ...
High-throughput sequencing and high-performance computing technologies have become powerful tools in clinical genetic diagnosis of hereditary disorders and genetic screening of healthy individuals to ...
Whole-genome sequencing is being implemented in research and clinical care, yet tools to assess patients' knowledge are lacking. Our aim was to develop a robust measure of whole-genome sequencing know...
DNA methylation is a conserved epigenetic modification of animal genomes, but genome methylation patterns appear surprisingly diverse in insects. Whole-genome bisulfite sequencing (WGBS) represents a ...
Treponema pallidum subsp. pallidum (TPA) is the infectious agent of syphilis, a disease that infects more than 5 million people annually. Since TPA is an uncultivable bacterium, most of the informatio...
The possible integration of genomic sequencing (including whole-genome and whole-exome sequencing) into the three contexts addressed in this special report-state-mandated screening programs, clinical ...
Techniques to determine the entire sequence of the GENOME of an organism or individual.
Clinical, therapeutic and diagnostic approaches to optimal disease management based on individual variations in a patient's genetic profile.
Work consisting of a set of directions or principles to assist the health care practitioner with patient care decisions about appropriate diagnostic, therapeutic, or other clinical procedures for specific clinical circumstances. Practice guidelines may be developed by government agencies at any level, institutions, organizations such as professional societies or governing boards, or by the convening of expert panels. They can provide a foundation for assessing and evaluating the quality and effectiveness of health care in terms of measuring improved health, reduction of variation in services or procedures performed, and reduction of variation in outcomes of health care delivered.
The minimum acceptable patient care, based on statutes, court decisions, policies, or professional guidelines.
Incorrect diagnoses after clinical examination or technical diagnostic procedures.
