Abstract
Preliminary findings indicated a less favorable fatty acid profile in plasma phospholipids of Canadians of Icelandic descent compared to that obtained from Icelanders living in Reykjavík, Iceland. Continuing analysis of the data from the Icelandic-Canadians study populations confirms the earlier findings. Levels of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids as well as ratios of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids in plasma phospholipids of Icelandic-Canadians were lower than those in plasma phospholipids of a subsection of tile Icelandic study population in the Fljótsdalur District of eastern Iceland.

Abstract
This brief report aims to give an overview of the history and current status of clinical genetics services in Iceland and specific genetic counseling considerations for Iceland's population. Presently, there are two part time medical geneticists and one full time genetic counselor with an MSc education from Cardiff, within the Department of Genetic and Molecular Medicine, based in Iceland's only tertiary healthcare facility, Landspitali, the National University Hospital. An oncologist (20 %) also contributes to the cancer genetic counseling service. In addition, a pediatric medical geneticist has a 25 % appointment at the Children's Hospital. No other health care organization offers genetic counseling, and there are no private genetic counseling services.
