Ion AmpliSeq™ Inherited Cancer Research Panel  Hide Panel Description


Research to identify specific genetic causes of inherited cancers is important but can be difficult because of pleiotropy, locus heterogeneity and accessibility of information. The Ion AmpliSeq™ Inherited Cancer Research Panel was designed based on extensive curation of peer-reviewed literature, disease research databases and consultation with key opinion leaders.
