Full Genome Sequencing Costs


NGS full genome sequencing prices

For those who are interested how much it costs to get your full genome sequenced – the prices are above. This table comes from a great review article on cancer genome sequencing that I have written before. The table clearly illustrates the promise of next generation sequencing in terms of pricing. It’s getting more and more affordable. I think we will see full genome sequencing in the clinic as a routine diagnostic tool quite soon. This will mean more accurate diagnoses, hence better treatment for various diseases. Of course the application to cancer is the most obvious one when we can identify the genome mutations and changes in expression that lead to progression of the disease. More accurate diagnoses and treatments will increase health and longevity of millions of people.
