  • Must be certified by the American Board of Genetic Counseling (ABGC)
  • Familiarity with genomic databases and variant classification
  • Working knowledge of molecular diagnostic techniques
  • Prior experience in a diagnostic laboratory, clinical report writing, and familiarity with human mutation databases, genome browsers, and HGVS nomenclature
