Program Description: 

Whole genome sequencing is a laboratory process that determines the complete DNA sequence of an organism's genome at a single time.  This entails sequencing all of an organism's chromosomal DNA as well as DNA contained in the mitochondria.  This talk will explain the difference between whole genome sequencing and whole exome sequencing (together called genomic sequencing) and will discuss complications of genomic testing and diagnosis.
