ADDITIONAL INFORMATION (Health Care)

Healthcare Applications

There are thousands of diseases caused by adverse DNA changes such as cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy and mitochondrial disease to name a few. While these diseases are well characterized, it is estimated that 1 in 12 Canadians, or over 3 million of us, possess DNA changes that may adversely affect our health throughout our lives.

There is a significant unmet need for DNA sequencing and analysis that the current Canadian healthcare system cannot provide, and Discovery DNA is uniquely positioned to fill that gap.

the information that these tests provide.

THE DISCOVERY DNA PROCESS

Discovery DNA reads 20,000 regions of DNA code or genes, that are linked to human growth, development and unfortunately, sometimes disease. In aggregate these areas are called an “exome” which typically provide 100 times more detail for the entire gene rather than small regions of the gene that typical ancestry-type tests capture.
