Fact Sheets


Microarray Information

The Genetic Support Network of Victoria (GSNV), in conjunction with the Victorian Clinical Genetics Services (VCGS) has developed a factsheet about microarrays.

Microarrays are a new genetic technology to analyse the whole genome rapidly and at low cost. This factsheet may be of use to families or individuals considering having a microarray genetic test or health professionals such as GPs, obstetricians, paediatricians who order genetic testing for patients.

Genetics Fact Sheets

The topics covered in the CGE fact sheets are intended to form a foundation of understanding of genetic principles, testing techniques and new genetic technologies. Several fact sheets have also been developed for commonly diagnosed genetic conditions in response to education programs or community needs. 


Patient and Family Fact Sheets developed by NHMRC are available on a range of different genetic conditions, terms, tests and treatments.

ThinkGenetic This website allows you to find out more about genetic diseases. You can ask a question, that will be answered by an interactive genetic counsellor or browse their extensive genetic disease database.
