Molecular Genetics

The molecular genomics laboratory focuses on inherited genetic disorders, providing essential information to genetic counselors, geneticists, and other physicians. We offer whole exome and gene panel sequencing as well as targeted sequencing, screening and triplet repeat analysis.

Single Gene or Gene Panel testing is available for multiple rare disorders, some of which are:

Our extensive experience and expertise across a range of techniques, indications and situations, as well as our close connection to the cytogenomics and pathology laboratories at KDL, facilitates rapid confirmation testing or targeted testing for family members.

The Knight Cancer Institute at Oregon Health & Science University is a pioneer in the field of precision cancer medicine. The institute's director, Brian Druker, M.D., helped prove it was possible to shut down just the cells that enable cancer to grow. This breakthrough has made once-fatal forms of the disease manageable and transformed how cancer is treated. The OHSU Knight Cancer Institute is the only National Cancer Institute-designated Cancer Center between Sacramento and Seattle – an honor earned only by the nation's top cancer centers. It is headquarters for one of the National Cancer Institute's largest research collaboratives, SWOG, in addition to offering the latest treatments and technologies as well as hundreds of research studies and clinical trials.
