You can find the Genografi process below, which begins with your order and ends with the presentation of your final report.
Next Generation Sequencing is the most recent technology used for reading the huge book of 3 billion letters we call the genome. The data is read, interpreted and annotated in an analytical platform especially developed for Genografi.
At the end of Genografi process, more than 270 syndromes are analyzed and presented to you in accordance with international standards. Scientific reference of each variation specific to you is separately indicated in your report.
We use special devices designed for DNA reading and sequencing in order to analyze your DNA, which is isolated from your saliva (or blood) sample in a laboratory environment. We also use Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technology to ensure that the sequencing quality is at the highest possible standard.
The DNA data received from the Next Generation Sequencing platform is analyzed using various databases, population studies and bioinformatics algorithms. Pathogenicity classification of variations are done according to the standards defined by American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG). You can see variations that are considered "pathogenic" or "likely pathogenic" in your Genografi report.
Your personal and genetic data is stored on our secure servers. Your information is protected against corruption, loss, unauthorized disclosure and access during genetic data processing and storing.
This is done according to the laws and regulations defined by European Union, where your data is anonymized while being analyzed, your genetic data and personal identity information (name, contact information etc.) are separated. Your identity information is NEITHER stored NOR shared with third parties. Also your genetic data stored in our servers is stored anonymously, separated from your identity information according to both applicable laws and international standards.
