Wake Forest Center for Precision Medicine Pilot Grant Award
Use of Whole Genome Sequencing in Familial Colorectal Cancers
This pilot grant seeks to evaluate the results from current targeted genetic sequencing performed in patients, who have been identified as high risk for familial colorectal cancer and referred to Genetic Counseling, to test the hypothesis that whole genome sequencing can replicate the results of targeted genetic testing panels in patients with known pathogenic variants consistent with colorectal cancer.
