History of genetic testing
When you hear the phrase ‘genetic testing’ you might get some picture in your mind of a bunch of people wearing glasses and white lab coats looking at petri dishes under microscopes in a state of the art facility. For a long time, that picture might have been more or less accurate. In its earlier stages, genetic testing was a time-consuming and expensive process. Because of the work and cost involved, genetic testing wasn’t widely available to many different patients. Thanks to advances in the scientific community over recent years, that’s no longer the case. Nowadays there are multiple options for getting a genetic test completed that can be both affordable and easy.
