HOUSTON, April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Gene By Gene, Ltd., the Houston-based genomics and genetics testing company, announced that it has signed an agreement with the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center to become one of its affiliated clinical laboratories.

Under the agreement, scientists at Gene By Gene's Genomic Research Center will provide the clinical phase instruction, training and supervision required for students in the Molecular Genetic Technology Program, one of eight undergraduate programs offered through MD Anderson's School of Health Professions.

"We're delighted to partner with Gene By Gene, with its long and pioneering history in the field of genomics," said Program Director, Peter Hu, Ph.D., with the School of Health Professions.
