The Amish Genetic Disease Panel, now known as Genetic Awareness Panel (GAP), was developed to address what is often an expensive and lengthy diagnostic odyssey for clinicians treating patients of Amish descent. GAP distills and leverages our nearly twenty years of experience identifying, diagnosing, and treating families affected by rare genetic disorders.
There are more than 120 disorders for which a common Amish founder variant has been reported in the medical literature. GAP tests for all published, population specific gene variants for these disorders.
