Use Cases


Baker Institute - Genomic risk in celiac disease

Baker Institute is developing a genomic risk score that can help predict risk of celiac disease that is yet to manifest itself. Gencove’s low-pass sequencing will be used to establish the validity and utility of genomic risk approaches for identifying individuals at high risk.

University of Michigan -    PSID

The Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID) is the world’s longest running household panel survey. Gencove’s low-pass sequencing is being used to add genomic information to the study with the aim of fully understanding the interplay of genetics and environment over the life course of the participants.

Animal genomics

Broad Institute - Darwin’s Dogs

Darwin's Dogs is a crowd-sourced genomics project studying how the dog genome has changed through history. Using low-pass sequencing, researchers are studying how genetics shapes behaviour, and psychiatric and neurological diseases in both dogs and people.

Conservation genomics

Stanford University - Conservation Genomics

The program is developing tools for the next generation of conservation scientists. By using low-pass genome sequencing, they are investigating the population genomics of endangered mammals like rhinos, tigers, and lions. In addition, they are sequencing sanctuary and captive animals in order to understand how the illegal wildlife trade impacts wild populations and their cosmopolitan trade routes.

Whole genome sequencing complement

University of Utah - Gene discovery in diabetes

Researchers are applying a novel and innovative approach to accelerate gene discovery in diabetic kidney disease that integrates big data from the Utah Population Database. Deep whole-genome sequencing on select members of these pedigrees is being combined with Gencove's low-pass sequencing data on additional individuals from high-risk families.
