WGS provides comprehensive diagnosis of variants in children with neurologic conditions

A specialist presenting at CNS 2021 highlighted the diagnostic value of whole genome sequencing (WGS) in children with neurological symptoms who have been without a definite diagnosis for prolonged periods of time. 

Dr Anup Patel from the Nationwide Children's Hospital, Columbus, Ohio, USA, said WGS covered a lot of diagnostic areas that previous testing failed to cover, and provided the most comprehensive analysis of genomic variants of all genetic testing methods.
