Next generation Sequencing based approach for diagnosis of Mitochondrial Disorders
The diverse clinical spectrum of diseases manifested by mitochondrial dysfunction demands proper interpretation and analysis of mtDNA variants. mit-o-matic is a tool designed to provide clinically relevant information distributed in disparate resources for understanding and annotating mtDNA variations.

Clinician Training and Education
Clinician Training and Education through a variety of avenues are available in the lab. For a complete listing of recent avenues, see the GUaRDIAN website for events / training sessions.
