Genetic Testing for Families Affected by Genetic Recessive Disorders
DNACheckup is a fairly new non-profit organization geared towards providing affordable DNA testing to families of patients with previously diagnosed recessive genetic disorders. Patients can order the tests online, which will be shipped to them directly. We work with the lab Gene By Gene in Houston, Texas, where the DNA samples are sent to be tested. Patients can then view their results online which are available in the next few weeks. The current cost of a test is $200 per participant, but with funds the goal is to provide testing for free or at a discounted price!
