The genetics of consanguinity and inherited risk
29th November 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
This webinar aims to explore the issues and management of risks related to endogamy and consanguinity and will highlight new advances in pre-natal screening protocols. Consanguineous marriage is still practiced by over 30% of the world’s population and in some areas, the prevalence is as high as 60%. Advances in next-generation gene sequencing have led to a better understanding of pre-emptive carrier risk assessments and adult-onset disease risks.
Free for RSM members.
