Genomics Unit

Developed by: Instituto de Investigación Sanitaria Galicia Sur

Description

The IISGS Genomics Unit offers technical support and advice in the development of methodologies related to genetic analysis and gene expression studies. Today, knowledge on genetic bases behind hereditary diseases as well as genetic diagnosis in patients with known pathologies are essential in the application of treatments and the development of new therapies specific to the patient’s genotype.
