What’s the difference between Health Nucleus whole genome sequencing and other DNA or genetic testing?
Many DNA and genetic tests examine only small segments of DNA associated with ancestry, traits (e.g., eye color, earwax type, bitter taste perception) and disease risk. With these tests, you only receive information about a small targeted set of DNA changes, or variants.
Health Nucleus performs whole genome sequencing – over 3.2 billion base pairs of DNA – with high accuracy, and then integrates this data with other clinical information. Health Nucleus Genomics reports provide information on a broad set of variants, including the common, rare and individually unique variations, and their associations with known traits and disease risks. These reports will provide you with an analysis across a broad spectrum of health areas and may help identify risks and provide opportunities to take action to protect and improve your health.
