Which method do you use to analyse my DNA?

GenePlanet takes advantage of the latest next generation sequencing (NGS) approach to read your entire genome. It is called low-pass whole genome sequencing (lpWGS) and is the latest solution in the field. Instead of reading the genome dozens of times (sequencing depth), advanced algorithms enable us to optimise sequencing depth significantly.

We have developed a sophisticated in-house bioinformatics pipeline, supported by statistical modelling, which produces high-quality genotypes from WGS data. By having a collection of reference panels from genomes of different individuals, we can obtain the whole genome of an individual. lpWGS has been proven to outperform typical DNA microarrays when assessing common genetic variants.
