The TruGenome service from lllumina, San Diego, uses whole human genome sequencing to aid physicians in identifying the underlying genetic cause of rare or undiagnosed diseases.
A team of geneticists performs the analysis using Illumina’s VariantStudio software for rigorous variant classification. VariantStudio aggregates data from multiple sources into a single database that is updated as new discoveries are made, guaranteeing that analysis is based on current knowledge of clinically relevant gene variants. By providing clinicians with more comprehensive information from a single test, the service enables a broader understanding of the genetic basis for disease.
