Ethical Implications of Rapid Whole-Genome Sequencing in Neonates
Using rapid whole-genome sequencing (WGS), an infant's genome can now be sequenced in as little as 26 hours allowing for rapid diagnosis and precise, individualized management of monogenetic causes of disease. The potential for decreasing cost and valuable time to diagnosis along with pain and suffering is becoming a reality in the NICU. Coupled with rapidly developing technology is a need to explore the associated ethical implication.
