Banner of Genetics in WI website


The Genetics in Wisconsin website is an online resource for non-genetic healthcare professionals to help them care for patients and families who are affected, or possibly affected, with a genetic condition. While some of the content on this site is specific to Wisconsin, much of the information will be relevant to providers across the United States.

Staff from the Wisconsin Genetic Systems Integration (GSI) Initiative develop and manage the information on this website. The GSI Initiative is based out of the University of Wisconsin-Madison Waisman Center.
