EVER thought about getting your genes checked out? A free online registry of genetic-test providers launches this week. The US National Institutes of Health says the tool is designed to clear the fog of confusion that surrounds genetic tests for disease. According to the NIH, about 2500 diseases can now be detected by such tests. The Genetic Testing Registry will provide free information about them to researchers, clinicians and curious individuals. Searching for a specific condition, for example, can bring up the genetic tests available for it. Users can then find out more about the labs that run the tests. The information will be provided voluntarily by the genetic-test providers themselves,
