It is believed that human chromosomes carry around 22,000 to 23,000 genes. An error in just one of these genes, sometimes just a single exchange in the building blocks of our DNA can, under certain circumstances, cause a serious illness. Genetic tests are often difficult to understand. It is therefore the task of a genetic counsellor to explain the findings to you in a simple and understandable manner.
