Identifying the genetic basis of familial disorders that affect children and adults.

The genetic revolution of the last few years has unmasked the genetic basis of many familial disorders, including conditions which had been regarded as sporadic. The human genome encodes 20,000 genes (and multiple variants of these genes), and so the list of genes that could be examined is huge. Sonic Genetics provides a selected range of tests for common familial disorders through our Australian laboratories. Our website provides guidance for clinicians regarding the indication for and utility of such tests. We also have access to the international testing resources of Sonic Healthcare laboratories across the USA, UK, and Europe. As always, our genetic pathologists are available to assist in the selection and interpretation of these investigations.
