Currently, Genetic abnormalities that can be detected before birth. The scientists said that with this newly developed tests, abnormalities caused by genetic errors can be detected much more. But researchers are also concerned if the examination results can be used as the basis for an abortion.
The researchers were able to predict the genetic code of fetal blood sampling by his mother who was 18 weeks of pregnant. In addition, the researchers also took dad’s saliva.
Natural mutations or de novo mutations is estimated to play a role in several complex disorders like autism and schizophrenia.
Later, with the development of a test that is more subtle and less expensive, prenatal genetic testing could include a more comprehensive results than those available today.
Because it can test thousands of genetic disorders, the researchers say this new test could give a lot of information about infant health conditions in the future.
