The article focuses on the use of whole-genome sequencing (WGS) by health-care professionals. It states that diagnostic tests are looking into large panel of genes through microarrays. It mentions that E. A. Ashley and colleagues cited personal medicines which can guide therapy and detect mutations that are associated with sudden deaths. It adds that sequencing techniques provide great potential for the identification of health problems using its genetic component.
