Genetic Testing, Genetic Counseling Resources
GeneTests and GeneClinics, companion resources on genetic counseling and testing for hereditary disorders, are freely available on the Web. In the past year, several new features and many disease profiles have been added.
Genetics Clinic Directory: List of 950 U.S. genetics and prenatal diagnosis clinics; searchable by geography, population (age group), and subspecialty, if applicable.
About Genetic Services: Primer of educational materials about genetics counseling and testing; useful for consumers and nongeneticist healthcare providers.
Teaching Tools: Downloadable PowerPoint slide presentation on the availability and use of genetic services; suitable for genetics professionals to teach nongenetics health- care providers.
The two resources gradually are becoming more integrated, with links from GeneClinics profiles to specific testing, counseling, and educational resources in GeneTests. GeneTest search results link to relevant GeneClinics profiles.
