IDDRC Genetics Core

Objective:

The Genetics Core supports research focused on the role genetic factors play in atypical physical, cognitive, and behavioral development. Supported research focuses on etiology, natural history, and prognosis of a variety of conditions associated with developmental delay, neuropsychiatric disorders affecting children, and behavioral and physical features of developmental disabilities. The services provided by the Genetics Core include:

  • Cell line establishment and tissue culture
  • Cytogenetic analysis, namely karyotype and fluorescence in situ hybridization
  • Single nucleotide polymorphism microarray
  • Identification of regions with genomic homozygosity and parent of origin for genomic abnormalities

The Core also serves as an interface for IDDRC-supported projects with the resources of other Genetics Core facilities established within the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, including current-generation sequencing.
