Front Line Genomics highlights the Smith Family Clinic for Genomic Medicine


The Smith Family Clinic for Genomic Medicine was recently featured in a new series from Front Line Genomics, “Digital DNA,” which explores the role of large-scale genetic testing in science, industry and society.

David Bick, MD, discussed how the Smith Family Clinic uses the power of genomics to diagnose patients with rare diseases.

“We think the key to developing this medical office is we will employ whole genome sequencing when medically necessary, rather than just exome or panels. It turns out, unsurprisingly, that when you do whole genome sequencing you can find quite a number of diagnosis that other sequencing methods don’t find.”
