- NCC Resource Repository (ReRe) is a public access database containing resources for patients, genetics providers and other healthcare providers, public health workers, educators, policymakers, and insurers. The resources were created by the National Coordinating Center, the Regional Genetics Networks, the National Genetics Education and Family Support Center, and other partners.
