  • Veritas genetics launches $999 whole genome and sets new standard for genetic testing

    New product in the market place:

    VERITAS GENETICS LAUNCHES $999 WHOLE GENOME AND SETS NEW STANDARD FOR GENETIC TESTING
    Boston, MA, March 3, 2016 – Veritas Genetics, co-founded by Harvard Medical School professor and genetics pioneer Dr. George Church, today introduces Veritas myGenome, the world’s first whole genome for less than $1,000, including interpretation and genetic counseling.

    I am starting this thread to solicit any information regarding the testing of this new product. This certainly looks as if it can be a game changer in genomic testing. Seems to be 30x coverage but I would like to know more specifics from anyone with knowledge of the product. Questions that come to mind are coverage areas and snp detection number in the Y chromosome area. What the snp detection number is at their 30x coverage? Is the data available for personal use and what file format the data is in? Ease of use with inquiry software of genome at the Veritas site.

    Check SNPS
    SNP Matches
    Novel SNPS
    Haplogroup and SNPS
    STR Results

      This is a first look at a Veritas Bam file by the folks at YFull. This is how this first look at the data compares to Y Chromosome tests done today by FullGenomes and Familytreedna. This was posted on YFull Facebook page by Vadim Urasin.

      An quality of your Veritas Genetics BAM file is less than Big Y in average. This is enough for SNP calling. STR calling will be worse. We can't guarantee a quality of STR calling. But width of the coverage is in the same level as in Y Elite, wider than in Big Y. Resume: SNPs better than Big Y but worse than Y Elite, STRs worse than Big Y and Y Elite.
