At NCGENES, we are excited about the potential of genomic sequencing to find genetic causes of conditions that have remained undiagnosed. However, most people with these kinds of conditions are unlikely to benefit by analysis of their genome at this time. To be eligible for NCGENES, a person must have a condition that appears to have a genetic cause (for example, because of a very early age of onset and/or the presence of many people in the same family with the same condition) and will need a clinical evaluation by a participating physician at UNC to determine eligibility.

To learn more about whether you may be eligible to participate in the study please email .

Several other groups in the US are also conducting large research programs in genomic sequencing although they differ in the eligibility requirements. There may be a center near you that is conducting this research.
