Genetics of Fragile X and Carrier Screening for Fragile X

August 23rd, 2022

Associate Professor Alison Archibald, from a webinar recording on 23 August 2022.

This webinar provided essential understanding of the genetics and inheritance of Fragile X, and a clear overview of reproductive genetic carrier testing for Fragile X.

Much of the discussion was informed by diagrams which very clearly explain the CGG DNA repeat sequence associated with Fragile X, and the inheritance of the gene mutation.   We recommend that you also watch the video recording of the webinar on our youtube channel:

A/Prof Alison Archibald is Group Leader – Reproductive Genetic Counselling at Victorian Clinical Genetics Services, with deep experience in clinical and research work in Fragile X.
