More Jewish genetic testing: More articles

Tracing the Tribe spotlighted the Los Angeles launch of a Persian Jewish genetic testing program here.

For those interested in Persian Jewish genetic testing, here's another article on the Cedars-Sinai program from The Forward, which just published its annual Genetics Issue.

There's also The Other Jewish Genetic Diseases which discusses Sephardic conditions, subtitled "With Ashkenazic Disorders Getting All the Attention, America’s Sephardic Jews Often Lack Specialized Screening Programs." See the separate Tracing the Tribe posting on that article.

The 2009 Genetics issue also includes the following:
