(PR Newswire) – Natera, Inc., a leader in non-invasive genetic testing, announced the publication of a study in the current issue of Science, which describes the identification of a genetic variant that influences the likelihood of aneuploidy in preimplantation embryos. Variants of this gene may help explain why some women take longer than others to achieve a successful pregnancy.
