  • n. Plural form of exome.


Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • And that means passing a major test: successfully sequencing the 100,000 exomes in the PGP.

    How the Personal Genome Project Could Unlock the Mysteries of Life

  • This is stunning because a year ago this would have cost ten times as much or more. 23andMe isn't the first company to offer consumers exomes - that would be Knome, of Cambridge, Mass. - but still the low price is eye-popping.

  • What 23andMe is offering is to make people's exomes available to them, and the DNA sequencer will go over their DNA 80 times known as 80-fold coverage to make sure that the genetic code is accurate.

  • We expect to launch the Ion Proton I Chip in mid-2012, which will allow researchers to sequence exomes in a few hours and the Proton II Chip 6 months later that will sequence human genome also in a few hours.

  • PGM is for genes and panels and small genomes, Proton is for exomes and genomes.

  • They sequenced the entire exomes of 53 schizophrenia patients, along with the exomes of their parents, in families that have no wider history of the disease.

  • Looking for novel variants in genes that were shared among subsets of the 10 patients 'exomes, they found novel, matching variants that were shared in three genes in nine of the patient's exomes, shared in six genes in at least eight exomes, and shared in 16 genes among seven exomes.


  • "To find these, it will be important to sequence the exomes of additional, well-characterized cases of Kabuki syndrome in which we do not find we don't see MLL2 mutations."


  • The University of Washington researchers sequenced the exomes of 10 unrelated individuals with


  • Beginning with the premise that Kabuki syndrome is caused by alterations in just a single gene, the researchers compared the exomes of the 10 patients to the human genome sequence to look for differences shared by the affected individuals.
