  1. Resource Description
    Our Mission The mission of the Center for Applied Genomics (CAG) is to develop new and better ways to diagnose and treat children affected by rare and complex medical disorders. The CAG is a specialized Center of Emphasis at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia with the primary goal of translating basic research findings to medical innovations. We aim to discover genetic causes for the most prevalent diseases of childhood including ADHD, asthma, autism, diabetes, epilepsy, obesity, schizophrenia, pediatric cancer, and a range of rare diseases. Ultimately, our objective is to generate new diagnostic tests and to guide physicians to the most appropriate therapies. The CAG is one of the world's largest genetics research programs, and the only center at a pediatric hospital to have large-scale access to state-of-the-art high-throughput genomics technology. CAG Services: The Center for Applied Genomics has an experienced team of researchers analyzing the immense amount of data generated from our high-throughput facility. We have expertise in carrying out large scale NGS, GWAS, CNV, and methylation studies.
