Test Launch // Whole Genome Sequencing Reanalysis

Thank you for your continued trust in Baylor Genetics as your genetic testing partner. As we continue to upgrade and refine our test menu and services, we want you to be the first to know about changes that may affect your testing experience with us.

Starting December 30, 2022, Baylor Genetics will be expanding our genome sequencing services to include Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) Reanalysis, test code 1897, with a turnaround time of 3 weeks. This additional service will enable healthcare providers to provide options for reanalysis and interpretation for their patients. Note, patients must have had WGS performed at Baylor Genetics to qualify for WGS reanalysis.

To optimize the outcome of the reanalysis process, we recommend waiting to order reanalysis at least one year from the date that the original genome report was issued. In addition, please ensure that all new phenotypic information for the patient is provided with the reanalysis request. The first reanalysis will be performed at no charge and  variants  will be analyzed based on the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG) guidelines.

The specific requisition to order genome reanalysis will be available on our website on the same date as mentioned above. If you have specific questions regarding these updates, please contact your Baylor Genetics account representative, call our Client Relations Division at 1-800-411-4363, or email us at help@baylorgenetics.com 



Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) at Baylor Genetics can detect structural variants, copy number variants of 3 exons or larger, intragenic insertions and deletions, clinically relevant tandem repeats, chromosomal aberrations across the genome, and more. Sequencing reads are mapped to the latest GRChg38 reference human genome build, which is considered to be the most accurately sequenced genome build to date.
