Sequencing vs. Genotyping

Genotyping and sequencing are two different technologies for measuring genetic variation.

Sequencing records the exact base pairs in segments of DNA. Whole-genome sequencing records all the base pairs of DNA in your genome.

In genotyping, we decide which SNPs to look for to determine which variants you have. Genotyping is reliable and cheaper than sequencing.
