Along with the diagnostic solutions, GENICA implements scientific studies, provides clinical research, organizes seminars and meetings of working groups in the medical genetics field.
Modern genetic methods (PCR; RT-PCR; sequencing; hybridization techniques) are the gold standard for detecting viral and bacterial genomes. These tests are faster, more sensitive, and more specific than any other diagnostic approach.
Genetic diseases are caused by a change in the DNA sequence. They can be caused by a mutation in one gene (monogenic) or in multiple genes (polygenic). Genetic predisposition is an increased likelihood of developing a particular disease based on individual genetic characteristics.
DNA testing is currently the most advanced and accurate technology in determining if an individual is the biological parent of another individual. The standard parentage DNA test provides convincing results in establishing the parent-child relationship.
