About 6 percent of newborn babies are born with genetic disorders every year. Even though many of the diseases are treatable when detected early, there is a shortage of screening tests, KT said. NobleGuard, launched on Monday, combines KT’s big data analysis technology and Lab Genomics’ next-generation DNA sequencing technology. Using its DNA database, the test can detect some 50 genetic diseases.
