Whole Exome Sequencing for Researchers

Researchers need expert service to optimize their Whole Exome Sequencing projects.

Researchers need Whole Exome Sequencing (WES) Service Providers that are tailored to their needs.


Whole exome sequencing (WES) is leveraged by researchers more now than ever. Your sequencing service provider needs to be knowledgeable and flexible:

  • Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) service providers are not always attuned to unique project needs
  • Researchers have specific technical expertise and need to collaborate with other specialists, especially when trade-offs are required
  • Pre-defined panels often don't contain all of the data needed for the project

Researchers don't just need a sequencer; they need a research partner.

Working with a sequencing service partner with broad and deep expertise in Whole Exome Sequencing is the best way to help ensure you select the right options for your project. Let the experts at Otogenetics collaborate with you to select the right, and the most cost-effective, WES options and help ensure you’ll get you the data you need.
