What is it?
How does genome sequencing work?
- Should you be diagnosed with cancer, a biopsy is taken of your tumor. Tumor tissue and blood are isolated and extracted and your DNA is sequenced in TGen’s laboratories.
- Using highly sophisticated equipment, the sequenced genetic profile is scanned for abnormalities that dictate the tumor functions.
- The abnormalities are analyzed to determine whether they match known mutations that may have responded to particular therapies and may uncover a potential treatment option not previously considered.
- If there’s a match, doctors may be able to use the findings to suggest specific treatments that have been used in the past to target the same mutations.
