Strategic Focus

IdentiGen provides specialized services on identification and genetic filiation in humans and delivers reliable and timely results with high quality standards and impartiality through coherent process operation. In addition, we work towards permanent qualification of human talent at the service of the laboratory. We develop and promote research activities based on interdisciplinarity and interinstitutionality. Problematic issues: Human rights.

Research Areas and Topics

  • Human Population Genetics. 
  • Forensic Genetics.  
  • Human and Medical Genetics: Chimerism (Follow-up of Transplant Patients).

Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
