Children's Mercy KC says its genomics system allows it to identify rare diseases like never before
Children's Mercy Kansas City (Mo.) says it has pioneered the world's most advanced genomic sequencing system, giving it the potential to diagnose a variety of rare pediatric diseases. The collaboration also includes Hassenfeld Children's Hospital at NYU Langone Health in New York City.
With 5-base genomic sequencing, researchers at the Children's Mercy Kansas City Research Institute say they can now sequence and extract the function from the full genome and methylome to identify disease variations never before done in a single test.
