This document provides an example lesson plan for a 1-hour discussion session at the undergraduate level on noninvasive prenatal diagnostics using next generation sequencing.

The goals of this discussion session are to: 1) introduce students to concept of noninvasive prenatal genetic testing using next generation sequencing; 2) provide students with ability to evaluate evidence for the technology underlying new genetic testing methods; and 3) provide students with the background to interpret results of a diagnostic test for trisomy 21.
