The Laboratory is specialized in various types of molecular-anthropological analyses, including population-genetic analyses, analyses of migration processes at regional and global levels, as well as applied molecular-anthropological analyses within the forensic science and genetic analyses in the field of sport and nutrition.

One of the key activities of the Laboratory will be associated with a molecular-genetic personalized approach to obesity such as the examination of genetic markers, treatment and prevention of obesity in the Croatian population. Testing of the genetic predisposition for obesity and healthy aging, by using molecular-genetic approach and standard medical-anthropological procedures, will be further used for developing a set of guidelines for proper nutrition and physical activity.

The most important equipment of the laboratory:

  • Illumina MiSeq System SY-410-1003
  • Agilent AriaMx Real-Time PCR System 5
