This session will provide an overview of the current state of WGS and transcriptomics for neurological disorders and discuss the impact results can have on clinical management and long-term outcomes. The presenters will review interim data from an observational study that implemented WGS as a first-tier test in patients with leukodystrophy and provide an overview of the next phase of that study which will evaluate clinical utility up to six months after results.
