The Interregional Cytogenetic Register System (ICRS) was initiated in 1973 and had been in the process of development until 1976 when the Register became operational. The goal was to design and maintain a registry of clinical and cytogenetic information which would be useful in providing better health care and delivery in the area of cytogenetics directly through the implementation of genetic services (diagnosis, counseling, and follow up) and indirectly through genetic research. When fully operational, the Registry could be instrumental as a resource in the areas of research and better health care services.
