The New “Understand Your Genome”

with Genome Medical

Genome Medical is introducing a new and improved Understand Your Genome® (UYG) program, and we look forward to building upon the success of the program started by Illumina. Our goal is to drive increased access to genomics education by making it available in multiple formats and settings: from online e-learning courses to select live events. And our clinical genetic experts will lead the way in helping individuals make informed decisions about genetic testing and their genetic health.
