The NCGENES project: exploring the new world of genome sequencing

N C Med J. Nov-Dec 2013;74(6):500-4.


Massively parallel sequencing (MPS) is now a clinical reality, promising improved diagnosis, targeted therapies, and population-based screening. To realize the potential of genomics, we must learn how to apply this technology optimally. The NCGENES project is designed to address several challenges that must be overcome in order to integrate MPS into clinical care.
