The Role of DNA testing in Rare Disease Research and Diagnostic
We usually do not see or know what happens to the collected patient samples that are intended for both diagnosis or research projects – such as the case for rare disease research. We will be showing you a glimpse of what goes on inside a molecular genetics laboratory, and what are the main tools and techniques that are employed to ensure fast and accurate results which in turn are then provided to the Genetic Consultants who can convey the results and ensure that the patients are appropriately followed-up.
