Welcome to the Department of Genetics
The Department of Genetics is dedicated to the generation of new knowledge about genetics and genomics, translation of that knowledge to clinical practice, and integration of genetics into all aspects of medical care. The department provides comprehensive and innovative clinical services in all areas of genetic medicine from prenatal through adult genetics and cancer genetics. It also provides state-of-the art genetic diagnostic testing in cytogenetics, biochemical genetics, and molecular genetics. Research programs focus on the mechanisms, diagnosis, and treatment of both rare and common genetic disorders as well as bioinformatics and systems biology.
