Genomic sequencing brings personalized cancer care to patients | Blue Cross Blue Shield

Genomic sequencing gives patients access to effective, personalized cancer care at every step of their treatment plan – which is important since cancer affects everyone differently. Genomic sequence testing allows doctors to have a microscopic view of cancer genes, giving them insights on defects. With this knowledge, doctors can better identify the appropriate drugs, therapies or clinical trials a patient needs.
