Geneticist's Day

Every February 8, Geneticist's Day is celebrated in honor of Gregor Johann Mendel, considered worldwide as the father of genetics.

The diagnosis of genetic diseases depends to a large extent on the knowledge of the disease itself and its genetic basis. This knowledge, together with the clinical phenotype of the patient and the medical indication that motivates the study to be carried out, allows the most appropriate diagnostic method to be selected in each case.

The development of massive sequencing technology has greatly boosted genetic studies in recent years, making it possible to identify the cause of many diseases that until now remained undiagnosed. Likewise, thanks to the information provided by genetic studies, we can anticipate possible alterations that may affect health and act early to avoid complications and obtain more effective treatments. The choice of one type of study or another will depend on different factors, so it is always advisable to evaluate each case individually.

At Dreamgenics we offer diagnostic genetic studies in nine medical specialties (Cardiology, Oncology (Cardiology, Oncology, Neurology, Endocrinology, Hematology, Pediatrics, Metabolopathies, Otorhinolaryngology and Ophthalmology), and four preventive genetic studies that allow us to know the predisposition to suffer certain genetic diseases. Our team of geneticists is always in charge of advising patients and their families about which study is the most indicated in each case through genetic counseling consultations.

Collaboration with associations

We want to help all those people who suffer from a genetic disease and have no diagnosis. For this reason, we collaborate with different patient associations such as APACI, ASEMPA, Tarlov Cysts Association, Ana Carolina Díez Mahou Foundation y Diagnostic Objectiveto contribute as much as possible to improve the quality of life of the associates and their families. Currently, we are working together with the Tarlov Cysts Association in a research project to try to identify genetic variants that may be associated with the development of this disease.

If you are a patient or an association, and you want us to help you, you can contact us by writing an email to or by calling 613 031 849.
