Overview

Clinical Exome analysis is used to investigate any complex health and developmental problem. In many cases the Clinical Exome is used to seek answers for individuals where other testing has failed to determine a cause of their health problems. The Clinical Exome is used by many specialist groups, like neurologists and geneticists, to investigate specific causes of well-known but poorly understood conditions (like brain malformations or rare and complex genetic disorders).
