Exome Sequencing

Concentrate your studies on the exome part of the genome

Benefit from a cheaper, faster and still efficient strategy in comparison to whole genome sequencing.

Most disease causing variants lie within the exonic regions, splice sites, or promotor regions. These regions comprise about 2% of the human genome. Sequencing the exome provides a cheaper and faster analysis of these regions compared to whole genome sequencing. Exome sequencing is an efficient strategy for reading the parts of the genome that are believed to be the most important for diagnosing diseases.

On routine Eurofins Genomics offers whole exome sequencing using the newest Agilent human all exon V6 exome kits in combination with Illumina HiSeq 2500 sequencing.

The Agilent V6 kits feature:

  • Highly uniform coverage of the exome
  • Up-to-date content
  • SureSelect Human All Exon V6 (60 Mbp; coding regions only)
  • SureSelect Human All Exon V6 + UTRs

Other solutions that are offered for your research are:

  • NimbleGen EZ Exome and EZMed Exome
  • Illumina Nextera Rapid Exome

You can order our capture and sequencing service in combination with the proprietary Eurofins exome analysis pipeline. Receive mapping files, variant annotation and interactive visualization of mapping results in your online genome browser.

Get the greatest flexibility and select the best suitable approach for your research. We would be happy to consult you about the most convenient strategy for your exome project.
