Infectious diseases represent a major health problem worldwide, both in terms of morbidity and mortality. A complex combination of environmental, pathogen and host genetic factors plays a role in determining both susceptibility to particular microbes and the course of infection. Numerous studies have now mapped and identified relevant genes using a variety of both family-based and population-based approaches.

At BION Genetic Laboratory, we offer molecular genetic testing services for infectious diseases using advanced technologies to accurately and rapidly diagnose viral and bacterial infections.
