Whole genome sequencing - an alternative to existing genotyping companies

Your genomic data will be owned by you - can sell it if you want to


Key points from article :

A new startup company Nebula genomics plans to sequence individual's whole genome.

Performs "1x whole genome sequencing,” which provides more data than genotyping.

But this is less detailed than a clinical grade sequencing, which costs about $1,000.

Provides information on ancestry and polygenic risk scores in return to the participants.

Plans to store data on blockchain so that the individuals retain the ownership of their genomic data.
