DIRECT ACCESS TO GENETIC TESTING: The National Society of Genetic Counselors believes that people interested in at-home DNA testing (also known as direct-to-consumer, DTC, or online genetic testing) have a right to make an independent, informed decision about whether to pursue this form of testing.
Cloning by somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) involves replacing the nucleus of an egg cell with the nucleus of a somatic cell from a donor, to create a zygote with the same nuclear DNA as the donor.
Genetic testing that utilizes a broad scope technology such as array-based testing or genomic sequencing may produce findings of likely medical significance unrelated to the primary indication for testing. When these incidental findings relate to a serious, well-characterized medical risk with
Electronic health records (EHR) must have the capacity to adapt to ongoing genetic and technologic advancements. The National Society of Genetic Counselors (NSGC) supports standards to integrate appropriate family health history (FHH) information into the EHR and strongly encourages
The National Society of Genetic Counselors (NSGC) recognizes that the unique potential of stem cell therapy to treat human disease and injury can be realized only through research on a diverse array of stem cell lines drawn from multiple sources, including embryonic, cord blood, and adult cells
