Paper Title: "Whole-genome sequencing as a first-tier diagnostic framework for rare genetic diseases"
Mr. Sattar has a background in IT in Business and is currently a scholar of PhD Informatics.
Rare diseases affect nearly 300 million people globally with most patients aged five or less. Traditional diagnostic approaches have provided much of the diagnosis; however, there are limitations. For instance, simply inadequate and untimely diagnosis adversely affects both the patient and their families. This review advocates the use of whole-genome sequencing in clinical settings for the diagnosis of rare genetic diseases by showcasing five case studies. These examples specifically describe the utilization of whole-genome sequencing, which helped in providing relief to patients via correct diagnosis followed by the use of precision medicine.
