Clinical Information (ข้อมูลทางคลินิก):
Whole Exome Sequencing (WES)-Solo test is the very large scale of genetic test which analyze all protein coding region of genes (exon) in a genome. Using this technique can be used to find the cause of genetic disease, especially in the patient with a broad spectrum of symptoms/phenotypes such as Early onset or intractable epilepsy, Intellectual disability, Inborn errors of metabolism, Musculoskeletal disorders, including neuromuscular, skeletal dysplasia and abnormal growth, and connective tissue disorders.
Compared with Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS), Whole Exome Sequencing (WES) is the cost-effective testing. However, this technique cannot see all genetic changes and might miss some genetic portions which are not included in the Exon region.
