The UAGC is a state-of-the art gene sequencing facility housed in the UA's Thomas W. Keating Bioresearch Building. As a part of Arizona Research Labs, the UAGC specializes in deciphering massive amounts of genetic code in very short time.
"This is a big step for the UA," Dr. Hammer said. "It means that your doctor could order a genetic test through us and possibly be reimbursed by your health care provider. We can now provide reports to physicians, perform clinical tests, and provide results for clinical trials. This places the UA in a position to offer a number of genetic testing options to the medical community at large."
