AccessDNA: Know Your Genetics
I’ve recently discovered AccessDNA on Twitter and I thought I should give it a try. On the main page, it says I should create my personalized report. Well, let’s do so.
It asked me about the medical conditions that occurred in my family; environmental factors I have to face; tests I would be interested in, etc. And then I received the personalized genetic report; actually a list of genetic tests that might be useful for me.
What can I do with that information? Yes, of course I want full genome scanning. But should this be my decision? Not the decision of my doctor? Just beacuse I reported to be of Caucasian descent, I should order genetic tests that cost several thousands of dollars?
You know what? I would love to hear the opinion of Steve Murphy here. And yours!
