NIH's Genetic Testing Registry up and running

Last week, the National Institutes of Health launched its online Genetic Testing Registry, according to iHealthBeat. The registry will allow users--doctors, researchers and consumers--to search for genetic tests using the name of the test, the provider of the test or a condition or gene that could be detected via the test. We reported last summer about NIH's plan to create the database, which was first conceived in March 2010. At present, the only information available in the registry is what was transferred over from the NIH's GeneTests website. Article
