Center for Applied Genomics

Today's Research Becomes Tomorrows Cure

The Center for Applied Genomics is one of the world's largest genetics research programs, and the only center at a pediatric hospital to have large-scale access to high-throughput genotyping technology. We currently have over 50 active disease projects – both internally and in collaboration with hundreds of researchers in North America, Europe, and Asia. Our unique resources allow us perform large-scale human genotyping studies: to date, we have analyzed genetic data from over 100,000 individuals.
