Behavioural genetics examines the origin of variations in human behaviour. More specifically, it addresses to what extend variations in genetic disposition and environmental factors account for individual differences in mental and physical health and behaviour.

BaseClear offers a broad package of services for the analysis of genetic variations. In recent years we have developed a range of genotyping tests that type polymorphisms in genes that are potentially involved in human behaviour. Most of the genetic variation that is being used in behavioural genetics relates to either SNP’s (single nucleotide polymorphisms) or VNTR (variable number of tandem repeats). BaseClear uses a combination of PCR, DNA sequencing and DNA fragment analysis to very accurately type these mutations.

Full service including DNA purification in low and high throughput
Samples may be delivered as purified DNA or as raw material (either buccal swabs, saliva or blood). We can also provide buccal swabs for collection of samples together with collection protocols. BaseClear has fully automated systems to isolate and quantify DNA from various sources in high throughput format and can perform the genetic testing of many samples per order.

Is your gene of interest not listed?
We are happy to design a new genotype test for any gene of interested. Depended on the expected number of samples, design is usually done free of charge.

Ordering is easy!
You can provide a number of different sample types including buccal swabs, saliva samples (e.g. oragene collection bottles), blood or DNA. Please always use an order form to send along with your samples.
