Abstract: The information to which whole genome sequencing (WGS) provides access raises questions about its disclosure to patients. The literature focused on the nature of findings, shows patients share the same expectations while evoking possible heterogeneity. Our objective is to test this hypothesis of preference heterogeneity with respect to the disclosure of results from WGS by means of a discrete choice experiment (DCE).
