MAGI is concerned with research and diagnosis of rare genetic diseases. It has been operating since 2006 in Italy and abroad. Today it has three centers in Italy, including a medical genetics laboratory specialized in next generation sequencing in Bolzano, a medical genetics laboratory specialized in MLPA in Rovereto (Trento) and a genetic diseases information center at San Felice del Benaco (Brescia). MAGI has also invested outside Italy, setting up non-profit genetics laboratories in countries such as Albania, Russia and in the near future, Kazakhstan.
