Exome sequencing is an excellent tool for investigating disease or protein formation.
The exonic regions of the genome are converted into RNA post transcription, and proteins post translation. Exome sequencing targets the regions of the genome which eventually become proteins. While exomes comprise only 2% of the genome, they contain ~85% of disease-causing variants.
By exclusively examining the coding only regions, the amount of sequencing data required per sample is drastically reduced, in comparison to whole genome sequencing. This targetted approach permits more coverage per sample, thereby enabling high-confidence detection of low frequency mutations.
