KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian Genomics Resource Centre Bhd's subsidiary MGRC Therapeutics Sdn Bhd has entered into a partnership with Rinani Genotec Sdn Bhd to offer sport-based genetic tests.

The group said in a statement that the collaboration will see both parties consult and collaborate on sports-based genetic profile testing and the marketing of these services.

In addition, Genotec will also work closely with MGRC Therapeutics on the marketing of Malaysian Genomics’ full range of Dtect genetic screening tests.

"By partnering with experts in sports science, we have now pioneered a genetic screening profile specifically designed for professional and amateur athletes, and everyday fitness enthusiasts.
