Avera Institute for Human Genetics

Avera McKennan has developed a formal working agreement for further collaboration with Vrije University (VU) in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Through the agreement, the Avera Institute for Human Genetics will be the genetics lab that will perform not only all of the genotyping for the Netherlands Twin Register, but also the genotyping for future genetics research in partnership with VU. Our two institutions will work together to advance research in genetics and genetic epidemiology.
