Rapid genome sequencing could revolutionize health care for acutely ill babies
Fantastic article about the benefits of #WholeGenomeSequencing in diagnosing sick babies. leading the way! 's legislation encourages state coverage of whole genome sequencing in children. #genomics #precisionmedicine
It's not often that you get the opportunity to write about a new technology that has the power to spare babies a lifetime of suffering. Read my piece about the incredible work of researchers
Dr. Kingsmore describes the moving story of Maverick Colton who was rapidly diagnosed with a rare genetic condition. You can read more here: #WCPG18
We’ll look back and wonder why there ever was a debate (outside of ivory towers) about sequencing acutely ill kids
There is clearly potential for major benefit here. The challenge will be constraining use to appropriate cases. Possibility of overuse is real.
