Tricky Neuro Genes: An Overview and Update
Description: This webinar will touch on four genes in the neuro space, some of which have been an established part of a genetic counseling training program curriculum, and others more recently discovered. Testing for these genes is not straight-forward, and we will highlight their significance and aspects to consider when ordering testing for them.
