Moving forward into the clinics: not exactly WGS but it’s getting there!

This is very positive. Now we have both Foundation Medicine and Ambry Genetics offering sequencing for cancer care, be it selected sets or Exomes. It’s apparent that discoveries will come mostly from whole genome sequencing, but the use of the more targeted or enriched sequencing in the clinics where costs are lower, speed is faster, and coverage can be even deeper is likely our intermediate solution towards getting the benefits of sequencing.
