Clinical Genome Center

genome-center

The Institute’s Clinical Genome Center is a state-of-the-art, genomic laboratory equipped with the latest sequencing technology and the capacity to process thousands of genomes annually.

Our team of scientists is highly experienced in conducting rapid Whole Genome Sequencing (rWGS) to deliver clinically validated results at top speed.

Dr. Stephen Kingsmore pioneered rapid whole genome sequencing for childhood genetic diseases and holds the Guinness World Record for the fastest genetic diagnosis – 26 hours. Read more.

We have recruited multi-disciplinary researchers and clinicians to bring the entire Rapid Precision Medicine spectrum from rWGS to bioinformatics analysis to identify disease-causing genetic variants and provide clinical interpretation and a precise diagnosis in as little as two days.

The Institute’s Clinical Genome Center is designed with support from our primary technology partner, Illumina. Following a stringent review process, the Center earned Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendment (CLIA) certification from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services; and a Clinical Laboratory License from the State of California in April 2017.
