The Molecular Genomics Laboratory (MGL) at the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institutes of Child Health and Human Development provides DNA and RNA sequencing services for genetic disorders. Our services include full gene analysis by DNA sequencing (whole exome, targeted exome and gene-specific sequencing), as well as whole transcriptome sequencing. The MGL can provide significant bioinformatic support. We can assist in designing experiments or sequencing strategies (for example, optimization of targeted exome design). Our mission is to offer accurate and innovative tools to facilitate research into the diagnosis, counseling and treatment of hereditary disorders; however, note that the MGL is not currently CLIA certified.
In addition to meeting with you personally, we have an MGL Users Group that meets periodically to discuss issues and protocols for submitting samples to the MGL for Next-Generation sequencing. Generally information related to the MGL and the MGL Users Group will be distributed through its Listserv function. To join the Listserv, send an email to email@example.com with the phrase ‘subscribe MGL-USERS-L’ in the body.
