Gene Machine Introduces Students to Genetics Testing

Today, the Greenwood Genetic Center Mobile Genetics Laboratory, the Gene Machine, visited Spring Valley High School!  The Gene Machine allows the technology and expertise of the Greenwood Genetic Center to come directly to the classroom.  It allows students to engage in fun, entertaining and educational scenarios where they have the opportunity to learn about genetic traits and disorders, understand the lab techniques used in making a diagnosis, as well as consider the ethical implications of testing.
