Available on the American Society of Human Genetics' education resources is a CSER-developed Guide to Interpreting Genomic Reports, a just-in-time resource for non-geneticist physicians when receiving a genomic test report. This Toolkit's work was led by Sharon Plon from Baylor and Kelly East from HudsonAlpha, with support from the CSER Practitioner Education working group.
