Quiz: How Much Do You Know About Genetic Testing?

Test your knowledge about what your genes could mean for baby’s health.

A quick biology class refresher: Babies are born with a 50-50 genetic mix from each parent. And while you may think that baby’s health is pretty much out of your control until you get a positive pregnancy test or baby is actually born, think again. Since baby is set to inherit each of your genes, it can help to learn whether you’re predisposed to passing on a genetic condition that can affect their health. And that’s where genetic testing, specifically carrier screening, comes in. Take our quiz to see how much you know.

Learn more about carrier screening and its benefits, and find out how to order your own comprehensive test from Invitae.
