Tomorrow, we will be wrapping-up chapter 14. I will focus on reading pedigrees and you should read pages 252-258. Pay particular attention to learning the particular examples of human genetic disorders, fetal testing, and neo-natal testing. I will not discuss these directly and will rely on you to ask questions.
