Will my entire DNA/genome be sequenced?

Your genome is your complete set of DNA. Initially, we won’t be sequencing all of your DNA but instead will specifically look at genetic variations known to be common in the population. We will use a DNA microarray to genotype ~650,000 genetic variations that allow us to capture information about >90% of the genome. As technology improves, our laboratory team may sequence all or part of your genetic code, to get improved coverage of rarer genetic variants. All your genetic data will be stored securely in order to allow us to improve our understanding of the development and treatment of anxiety and depression, as well as other health studies, as part of the BioResource.
