The ObG Project - Genome Section

The ObG Project is a ‘for provider – by provider’ mobile site, providing summary entries on best practices and guidelines from Women’s Healthcare providers. The management is lead and includes those with expertise in reproductive and women’s health genetics (CGC/Medical Geneticist). A special section called ‘The Genome’ was created to help integrate genetics and genomics into primary care, throughout a woman’s lifespan. The entries are cross referenced so that they can appear in other sections, such as Ob and/or Gyn. In addition, the ACMG secondary findings are addressed in entries such as Marfan syndrome.

Some of the entries offer CME/CNE for a fee.
