The Promise and Challenges of Next-Generation Genome Sequencing for Clinical Care

Abstract Full Text
JAMA Intern Med. 2014;174(2):275-280. doi:10.1001/jamainternmed.2013.12048

Johansen Taber and coauthors discuss the need for rigorous studies to assess the utility of whole-genome and whole-exome sequencing in large groups of patients, including comparative studies with other approaches to screening and diagnosis, and the evaluation of clinical end points and health care costs. Although whole-genome or whole-exome sequencing show great promise, they should be incorporated into patient care only in limited clinical situations.
