Are You a Carrier of a Rare Genetic Disease?

Doron Behar, MD

Doron Behar, MD, chief scientific officer at Gene By Gene talks about the company's new carrier screening programs to help couples plan for their family's health.

As Dr Behar explains in this video, Gene by Gene collaborated with Thermo Fisher Scientific to develop the CarrierScan Assay, a research test that can be used to guide the development of carrier screening tests for the general population.
As we enter the genomic revolution, Dr Behar notes that genomic data will become more and more prevalent and consume a more significant part of our medical records.  Among those records, should be a person’s genetic makeup to determine if they are carriers for a genetic condition (e.g., cystic fibrosis, Gaucher disease etc).
