The genetic diagnostic laboratory at Centre for DNA Fingerprinting & Diagnostics offers comprehensive diagnosis of genetic diseases (cytogenetic, biochemical and molecular). The centre also offers prenatal diagnosis for detection of chromosomal abnormalities, single gene disorders and inborn errors of metabolism. In addition to providing genetic diagnostic services, the laboratory carries out research work on molecular pathophysiology and mapping of genetic disorders. Short term training/observership is provided for interested students/doctors/investigators on a case to case basis.
