In addition to routine diagnostics, the Laboratory of Molecular Genetic Diagnostics is conducting also in several research projects. Methods like next generation sequencing (NGS), Sanger sequencing, microarray comparative genomic hybridization (Array-CGH), microsatellite analysis, fragment analysis, multiplex ligation-dependent amplification (MLPA) and Southern Blot are well established in the laboratory and provide the basis for various research cooperations.
