nilagenome is the whole genome and whole exome sequencing service developed and offered by Nila Medica in cooperation with world leaders in sequencing and bioinformatics analysis, dedicated to anyone who wants to know in depth their genome.
Unlike most common genetic or genomic tests, which analyze only one or a few genes, following a specific request, whole genome or whole exome sequencing allows you to know the whole sequence of your genome, and to obtain endless information useful for health and wellness.
Our service provides whole genome or whole exome sequencing with NGS (next generation sequencing) methods, the elaboration of an initial report, which can be customized based on specific requests of particular interest, and the safe storage of sequencing data always available for updates and/or additional virtual test on demand.
The sequencing is performed using a saliva sample, collected in a non-invasive way through a specially developed sampling kit.
Custom reporting is possible, for example for sport & fitness (also for professional athletes), nutrition, antiaging & beauty and much more.
The information contained in the DNA is responsible for the color of our eyes, determines what we should eat to feel good, which sport is more appropriate for each of us, how we respond to certain drugs, which diseases we are more predisposed and much, much more.
With nilagenome you can access this information and have it always available anytime.
One only test, to be performed just once, to get an initial report with lots of useful information and directions right away, and to create a file that represents the digital copy of your genome, saved in cloud or on physical support, available forever, to consult, analyze and retest countless times "on demand", whenever it will be necessary throughout life, always getting new information and answers.
Why? To allow you, with the support of your doctor and our geneticists and bioinformatics experts, to make the best choices for health, wellness and beauty, and to get the best possible results in sport and diet.
With nilagenome, you can truly enter the age of personalized medicine, taking every day the most correct decisions, based on the unique knowledge of your genome.
Simple, innovative, forever: nilagenome ™
Whole genome sequencing has ushered in a new era of medicine, making available diagnostic, clinical and lifestyle information unimaginable just a few years ago: personalized medicine becomes now a real opportunity.
Choosing to sequence your whole genome with nilagenome you can have:
An initial report with the detailed analysis of all the detected gene variants related to a predisposition or greater risk of developing many diseases, including: tumors, cardiovascular, autoimmune, metabolic, immune system, neurological diseases and disorders and much more .
Information on wellness and longevity, metabolism, cardiovascular health, weight control, diet, physical activity, aging, physical appearance and much, much more.
An analysis of over 200 pharmacogenomic variants, the individual DNA characteristics related to how the body metabolizes certain drugs.
Identification of the possible state of healthy carrier for numerous genetic hereditary diseases, with benefits for the whole family and for reproductive health.
The entire DNA sequence obtained with nilagenome is digitized into a file that represents the digital version of your genome, safely saved in the cloud, always available for download and to be consulted anytime during the life.
By choosing nilagenome today, you will have, forever, this digital copy of what makes you unique.
This file can be re-analyzed periodically, to obtain further information in addition to the initial ones, made available in the future thanks to the continuous progress of genomics.
Or, the file can be analyzed on request to obtain specific information related to certain genes, following the onset of symptoms or a disease, a new diagnosis, or the discovery of a new drug.
Since the whole DNA sequence has already been obtained, there will no longer be need for a new laboratory test.
A digital, virtual test will be enough, simply performed with bionformatic analysis methods using the sequence already available and saved.
Simple, cheap and fast, without having to wait, in case of need, the laboratory time required to sequence the DNA.
Enter the future with us, choose nilagenome™
nilagenome is available in the WES and WGS versions.
In the WES (Whole Exome Sequencing) version, the entire human exome is analyzed. The exome is the set of all 22,000 human genes. By choosing the WES version, then, you are sure to sequence and analyze all the genes that may be involved in the etiology of many diseases.
In the WGS (Whole Genome Sequencing) version, the entire human genome is analyzed: the whole exome, as in WES, and also the whole non-coding portion of the genome, which makes up about 97% of the DNA. Whereas in the past it was believed that mutations in this part of the genome were not relevant in the origin of pathologies, today we know that the opposite is true. For example, the ENCODE project has already shown that many disease-related mutations are located in the non-coding portion of the genome, and not in the genes. Sequencing also the non-coding part of the genome could therefore be very useful also for future developments, when more and more significant mutations in this part of the genome will discovered.
WES (Whole Exome Sequencing) is a very good test, the most complete available today for the examination of all 22,000 human genes
WGS (Whole Genome Sequencing) is the best genomic test, the most complete because it analyzes all 22,000 human genes and the whole non-coding portion of the genome.
Choosing WES (Whole Exome Sequencing) is far better than choosing any other test that only analyzes one or a few genes (genetic panels).
Choosing WGS (Whole Genome Sequencing) is the best possible choice, even in the future.
