Driven by discovery, we’ve continually set the standard for genetic innovation, which remains the centerpiece of our work today.
Founded by Dr. Tom Caskey and Dr. Art Beaudet, focused on cytogenetics and biochemical genetics for inborn errors of metabolism.
Baylor College of Medicine Human Genome Sequencing Center (HGSC) designated one of six pilot programs for the final phases of the Human Genome Project (HGP).
HGSC – one of three sites from the pilot program – completes the Human Genome Project.
Specialties in cytogenetics, chromosomal microarray analysis, DNA diagnostics, biochemical genetics and mitochondrial diagnostics.
