Whole Genome Sequencing

Regions of DNA between the EXONS are called INTRONS. We don’t know what most INTRONS do but we know if we read the DNA in INTRONS, there can be a higher yield of information in diagnosing genetic diseases. Reading both the EXONS and INTRONS is called WHOLE GENOME SEQUENCING (WGS). Because more DNA regions are looked at in a WGS compared to WES, there is a higher cost to doing a WGS but it can reveal more information.


Results are typically ready within 14 business days, once received in the laboratory. Discovery DNA makes no guarantee as to when test results will be available, as demand may exceed laboratory capacity.  We reserve the right to limit quantity of orders purchased.  Cosent forms must be filled out, emailed and returned to us prior to shipping of kits.  Email consent forms to the following email address: samplecoordinator@discoverydna.ca.

    We take pride in performing the adequate quality control measures and taking the steps necessary to ensure that our lab’s protocols actions and procedures are trackable and ultimately provide you with a test result that you can trust.

    The amount of money back provided from refunds is different depending on the conditions of your order. We invite you to read the conditions explained in more detail below, in order to see the condition that applies to your situation, while following the correct procedure.

    1. If you cancel your order before we ship your sample collection kit: If you request a refund after placing your order, but before our Sample Coordinator ships you your sample collection kit, we will provide you with a full refund less a small service charge.

    2. If you cancel your order after we ship you your sample collection kit: If you request a refund after your sample kit is shipped to you, OR after you ship back the collection kit, we will provide you with a full refund less shipping and collection kit costs, and a small service charge

    If you have any questions about our refund policy, please contact us at info@discoverydna.ca.
