Whole Genome Sequencing
Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) is the most comprehensive Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) method. Entire genome can be analyzed end-to-end via WGS. WGS analysis covers all types of variants including SNPs, InDels, and CNVs. Unlike WES, WGS covers also the intronic regions of genes and mitochondrial DNA.
Whole Exome Sequencing
The exon is defined as the protein-coding parts of the genes. 1-2% of the human genome consists of exons. The sum of all exons in DNA is called exome. Whole Exome Sequencing (WES) is more cost effective and has a greater sequencing depth than WGS. Thanks to WES, the coding regions of thousands of genes can be tested simultaneously without the need to select a specific gene or group of genes to study.
Targeted sequencing focuses on a particular gene group or a specific region in the genome. The sequencing depth is greater than WES and WGS. All types of variants including SNPs, InDels, and CNVs in specific regions can be identified. Targeted sequencing reduces cost, increases speed and reduces the computational burden.
