The Human Genetics and Clinical Research Core provides services to enhance translational studies in kidney disease, particularly in the area of human genetics.

This core provides infrastructure support for several key steps in translational research, including development of HIC protocols, patient recruitment, patient DNA extraction and archiving, tools for high throughput SNP genotyping and DNA sequencing, and analysis of genetic linkage and linkage disequilibrium.
