AMP Test Directory

I had a meeting with the staff of the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) who are working on the Genetic Test Registry (GTR) project on November 29, 2010. It was a great meeting, and I will continue to work with them to develop a tool that laboratories can use for clinical and research purposes. Direct involvement by AMP members has been welcomed by the NCBI and is critical to the formation of a tool which will benefit molecular laboratories and AMP members. I welcome any input or wish list items that you may have for the Test Directory. My contact information is below.

As always, the mission of the AMP Test Directory is to provide a resource to medical personnel of available molecular testing in the United States. As the Test Directory Editor, my responsibilities include reviewing all updates to the Test Directory, regular communication with the Test Directory Programmer and participation in the AMP Publications Committee and now the soon to be operational AMP Web Editorial Board. If you have any questions, ideas or concerns regarding the Test Directory, please do not hesitate to contact me ( and Mary Williams (
