The information presented in the Analysis Report represents an interpretation of the DNA sequence based on the current state of scientific knowledge. As more human genomes are sequenced, new information is uncovered at a rapid pace. Variants that previously were deemed to be of unknown significance, might be discovered to play an important role in trait development. Therefore, reanalysis of a gene sequence can take advantage of new scientific knowledge.
Genome sequence reanalysis based on new scientific data and techniques can be performed every 6 months or every 12 months (as preferred by the client) after the original Analysis Report is issued. A cost will apply for each updated Analysis Report.
To access data reanalysis service the client must either:
1) Store the genome DNA sequence in a genome digital repository and choose an option of future reanalysis (there is a cost for storage). Third party provider of genome reanalysis can access the stored DNA sequence for latest data interpretation
2) Reload the subject’s genome at secure website portal for additional analysis
This service can also be utilized if the client’s decision to omit specific types of information in the Analysis Report has changed after the data have been delivered. The client has the option of having the genome in question reanalyzed to gain access to the types of information that were previously excluded.
