Lessons from Multi-Generational Genome Sequencing

Researchers from the Institute for Systems Biology (ISB), in Seattle, WA have announced that they analyzed the first whole genome sequences of a family of four. The study illustrates the profound benefits that can be gained from sequencing several generations of the same family such as minimizing sequencing errors, increasing the accuracy of the data and more accurately pinpointing genetic causes of disease.

Labgrab recently interviewed Dr. Leroy Hood of ISB to get his input into the matter. Click here to read the interview in full.
