Center for Applied Clinical Genomics (CACG)

We’re working to turn new genetic information discovered by our researchers into tangible improvements in patient care. This translational (turning discoveries into practical applications) research is focused on understanding genetics and the basis of genetic disorders in children, as well as interactions between the environment and genes that contribute to human malformations.

Our discipline applies recombinant DNA, DNA sequencing methods and bioinformatics to sequence, assemble and analyze the function and structure of genes.
