Banding techniques are employed when deletions, inversions, duplications and reciprocal translocations are involved. We also offer genetic counselling in problems which involve birth defects, delayed or abnormal sexual development, metabolic disorders or immune deficiency syndromes. Identification of the genetic components in these conditions and determining the risk of recurrence of specific anomalies are vital to veterinary medicine which is primarily concerned with the alleviation of health related problems in livestock and companion animals.
