About Our Organization

PGDx brings proprietary technology to each cancer genome analysis project.Our CLIA-validated facility assures the highest specificity and sensitivity for your samples.

We have long understood the importance of making sure what we think we’re seeing are bona fide somatic mutations, as opposed to potential experimental artifacts or other type of false positives. We continue to build and refine our proprietary bioinformatics pipeline, filtering capabilities, and inspection approaches to decipher the complexity of cancer genomes and accurately reveal sequence and structural alterations.

Our approach is based on a comprehensive analysis of cancer genomes. Our founders were the first to perform genome-wide sequence analyses of human cancers. It was through a comprehensive approach that they were able to make novel discoveries of important driver mutations found in multiple tumor types.

New study finds bias against female lecturers among student course evaluations, the Economist reports.

A research duo finds that science and technology graduate students who turn away from academic careers do so because of changes in their own interests.

Students whose classmates are interested in science are more likely to think about a career in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, a new study says.

CNBC reports that the genetic counseling field is expected to grow as personalized medicine becomes more common.
