NAG’s AI-powered genome analysis platform gives you a 360° view of each patient’s genetic background. Uncover how each individual’s DNA impacts their health, enable targeted preventive care, and empower your practice with bioinformatics and AI.
With the processing power of AI, we can generate clinically actionable insights individualized to each patient by comparing billions of bioinformatics data points to millions of peer-reviewed medical research papers. Bring cutting-edge medical knowledge into your practice and upgrade your care.
Genomics is the study of an individual’s entire set of genes, including how genes interact. Genomics enables investigation into complex biological processes that often require many genes, such as in disease development.
In contrast, genetics studies the heredity of an individual trait (such as eye color). Typically, genetics is only concerned with a single gene at a time. The term “genetic test” can also refer to a “genomic test.”
Assessment of a specific genetic variant, often a single base pair change (single nucleotide polymorphism, or SNP). These are often direct-to-consumer tests and only look at common genetic variants. This level of testing does not look for the unique, rare variants that contribute to an individual’s health outcomes.
Assessment of several genes involved in a specific indication, such as hereditary cancer or pharmacogenomic panels. This type of testing is most appropriate for diagnosing a suspected medical condition. For example, in a patient experiencing symptoms of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, a doctor may validate the diagnosis by ordering an Ehlers-Danlos syndrome gene panel. Many of these tests are only available through healthcare providers.
An analysis of the full length of the entire protein-coding regions of the genome, producing a more complete picture of an individual’s DNA. Because this testing covers all variants included in the types of testing above, plus many more, it is appropriate for all patients. Given the breadth of the analysis, these tests are only available through healthcare providers.
