Genetics 101: Navigating the Many Twists and Turns of Fragile X Inheritance

Fragile X-associated disorders include a wide range of physical, intellectual, and behavioral symptoms that can affect family members in many different ways. These conditions are passed down in families through expansions of the FMR1 gene. Even for genetics professionals, FMR1 inheritance is complex and confusing, so it’s no surprise that families often have questions about the genetics of Fragile X. Whether you’re a newly-diagnosed family in the fragile X community or have been living with the diagnosis for several years, please join us as we speak with Brenda Finucane (Geisinger, ADMI Associate Director & Professor) about the nuts and bolts of Fragile X inheritance.

A recording of this session will be available shortly after the webinar.

This webinar and its recording is provided free thanks to the generous support of our donors and volunteers. If you’d like to continue more events like this, please consider donating to the National Fragile X Foundation.
