The Molecular Cytogenetics Laboratory at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM)
performs a wide range of cytogenetic, molecular, and DNA-based testing for clinical and research facilities,
private companies, veterinarians, breeders, and animal owners.


Our lab remains open to receive samples.

We are following University and State guidelines in respect to social distancing and operations. 


For chromosome analysis, we use both traditional and state-of-the-art techniques and carry out tests for all domestic animals and a broad range of wild species, including non-mammalian vertebrates. Analyses are done either for a fee or on a collaborative basis.

Available Services:

  • Karyotyping from blood, tissues and cell lines
