The Centrer has played a leading role in a number of high-profile clinical and genetic studies, including molecular genetics, biochemical, cytogenetic, immunohistochemical services, molecular diagnostics of infections, as well as genetic counselling. CMG also provides a broad range of services for children and adults in its out-patient clinic facility. CMG is the first Armenian institution that has established close collaborations between medical geneticists and physicians.
