Legislators Introduce Bill to Increase Whole-Genome Sequencing Access for Pediatric Illnesses

The aim of the bill is to provide access to whole-genome sequencing for "certain undiagnosed children under the Medicaid program, and for other purposes."

The hospital is a pioneer in using rapid sequencing in the care of pediatric patients. A few years ago, Rady Children's Institute for Genomic Medicine in San Diego hired clinical genomicist Stephen Kingsmore as its first president and CEO, and subsequently launched a rapid genome sequencing test for critically ill newborns.
