Applications of Whole Exome Sequencing

Whole exome sequencing (WES) is a next-generation sequencing technique used to sequence all of the protein-coding regions present in the genome, termed the ‘’exome’’. It uses probes to extract just the protein-coding sequences, effectively removing ~99% of the genome, leaving researchers with the sequences that are most likely to contain meaningful changes.

  • Identifying coding mutations in cancer
  • Screening for mutations associated with disease
  • Investigating alternative splicing events
