The Department of Clinical Genetics is a regional centre for genetic diagnosis and counselling of patients and families with chromosome anomalies, inborn errors of metabolism, syndromes and other inherited, congenital, and malignant disorders. We see approximately 2500 patients annually in our outpatient clinic where we diagnose and assess the risks of genetic predisposition to diseases such as cancer and perform diagnostics of syndromes. Moreover, we assist in the interpretation of genetic test results.
Our laboratories include a cytogenetic and a molecular genetic laboratory where we perform pre- and post-natal cytogenetic and molecular diagnostics.
We document incidence of genetic diseases in the population in national and international databases, develop new methods and perform research in collaboration with national and international research groups.
We offer a wide spectrum of analyses in our own laboratory, but also facilitate testing for additional genetic disorders in other laboratories.
