PRECISION AND COMPUTATIONAL DIAGNOSTICS

Precision and Computational Diagnostics

The Division of Precision and Computational Diagnostics (PCD) uses massively parallel (next generation sequencing) approaches for the large-scale interrogation of genetic variation in the field of nucleic acid-based diagnostics. It provides the foundational basis for diagnosis and management of diseases, ranging from inherited diseases to infectious disease and cancer. The division encompasses Molecular Pathology, Cytogenetics, and the Center for Personalized Diagnostics.
