Clinical Services – Molecular Genetic Testing
Molecular genetics aids in the understanding of genetic mutations that can cause certain types of diseases. Molecular genetic testing identifies the following:
Changes in genes (missing or additional sections of a gene).
Changes in chemical bases within the DNA strand (i.e. missing, additional or altered bases).
Genes with too many copies, hyperactive genes, and silenced genes.
