A few weeks ago, I highlighted new guidelines from ACMG on exome/genome screening in pediatrics (here).
This week, ACMG has updated carrier screening guidelines for recessive- and X-linked conditions.
- See the open-access guideline (practice resource) from ACMG here.
- Gregg et al, 2021: "Screening for autosomal recessive and X-linked conditions during pregnancy and preconception: a practice resource of the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics"
- "ACMG has now created a set of 113 genes, both autosomal recessive and X-linked, that should be considered as a standard offering to preconception and prenatal patients."
