Modes of Inheritance

Modes of Inheritance

These videos explain a few of the more common ways that rare, genetic disorders may arise in children, or "Modes of Inheritance." We also have two videos explaining how TGen scientists use a process called "Whole Exome Sequencing" to analyze a child's genetic blueprint and use that information to try to find a diagnosis.

We invite you to watch these videos before you come to the clinic to familiarize yourself with the topics we will be discussing and ask us any questions that may arise. Plus, you can share them with your family and friends to help explain the process.

Thank you for your faith in TGen's Center for Rare Childhood Disorders to provide hope and answers for your family.
