Latvian Genome Centre


Latvian Genome centre (LGC) is a structural unit, that forms and maintains Latvian Genome Data Base and other biobanks. Additionally, it functions as genotyping and sequencing laboratory providing wide range of molecular biology methods for identification and research of different disease biomarkers.

Biobank maintenance

LGC provides maintenance of several biobanks:  Latvian Genome Data Base and data collections of monogenic diseases, juvenile arthritis, cleft palate /cleft lip palate and heart disease patients form Latvian Cardiac centre.

Genotyping and sequencing laboratory

Genotyping and sequencing laboratory of LGC performs different genetic tests, both by offering technical service to research projects and by carrying out detection of gene alterations for interested individuals
