The cost and speed of DNA sequencing have drastically improved due to innovations in next-generation sequencing (NGS). Whole exome sequencing (WES), transcriptomics, and targeted gene panel sequencing all generate large unstructured datasets that require customized bioinformatic pipelines. These types of techniques can be applied in precision medicine initiatives focused on the development or implementation of personalized treatments and health maintenance strategies. The innovations discussed will highlight data analysis techniques and strategies for translating NGS into actionable knowledge, focusing on efforts in pediatric oncology and rare disorders.
