  • Excellent verbal and written skills in English are a necessity

    Additional valued assets:  
  • Knowledge of current genomic information and variant databases, in addition to experience in NGS methods 
  • Research or clinical experience in interpreting genetic test results utilizing NGS, Sanger sequencing and other methods
