If I'm Healthy, Why Should I Have my Genome Sequenced?by Anne Buchanan et al.The Mermaid's TaleAugust 6th, 2013Do people believe that future disease is truly predictable from their genome? We think that most geneticists, at least, would say not.
DTC Monopoly and Meby Jessica CussinsBiopolitical TimesAugust 6th, 2013A recent study shows yet again that results from different direct-to-consumer genetic testing companies vary. So what will the emerging monopoly of 23andMe mean for accuracy?
The Biggest Threat to the Genomic Revolution? Spying Scandals by Gillian TettFinancial TimesJuly 31st, 2013It is now possible for scientists to compare the genomic sequence of thousands of people and thus spot patterns of diseases that range from cancer to schizophrenia, but what about privacy?
Science as Social Control: Political Paralysis and the Genetics Agendaby Jonathan LathamIndependent Science NewsJuly 31st, 2013A new study in Science found that fully 98% of variation in “educational attainment” cannot be attributed to inherited genetic differences. Why did the authors fail to mention this fact in the title or in the summary?
uBiome: Ethical Lapse or Not?by Judy StoneScientific AmericanJuly 25th, 2013Skirting the rules hurts the company's image, fosters mistrust and, perhaps more importantly, may hurt the citizen science movement more broadly.

Genetic Screening: Every Newborn a Patientby Stefan TimmermansLos Angeles TimesJuly 19th, 2013Giving parents a torrent of information about a child's genetic disease risk will profoundly change the experience of bringing a new life into the world.
Direct-To-Consumer Genetic Testing Kits Vary in Predictions of Disease RiskMedical XpressJuly 17th, 2013An in-depth analysis and comparison showed that predicted risks differed among the companies and were contradictory for certain traits in certain individuals.
Senator Leahy Urges NIH to Use March-In Rights on Myriad BRCA Testby Donald ZuhnPatent DocsJuly 17th, 2013The government can ensure greater access to genetic testing for breast and ovarian cancer, under a law that protects taxpayers from having to pay for inventions the public has already funded.
2 Competitors Sued by Genetics Company for Patent Infringementby Andrew PollackThe New York TimesJuly 10th, 2013Despite the Supreme Court’s ruling last month that human genes cannot be patented, Myriad Genetics is suing competitors that have begun to offer genetic testing for breast cancer risk.
First Baby Born After Full Genetic Screening of Embryos by Linda GeddesNew ScientistJuly 8th, 2013"There is the potential for getting an unprecedented amount of information about an embryo before it's transferred to the womb. We need to be very careful that this isn't used for trivial, non-medical reasons."
Jeremy Hunt launches genomics body to oversee healthcare revolutionby Randeep RameshThe GuardianJuly 4th, 2013Genomics England will aim to attract private investment in life sciences, but campaigners raise patient privacy concerns.
From Suspects to the Spitterati: A collision of power, profit, and privacyby Jessica CussinsBiopolitical TimesJune 27th, 2013DNA collection is increasingly ubiquitous, and the push for access to genetic information is gaining momentum. What questions should we be considering?

Public Invasion of Genetic Privacy For UK Royal Family?by Dr Philippa BricePHG FoundationJune 17th, 2013A front-page story based on DNA analysis of distant cousins reveals that Prince William and Prince Harry have Indian ancestry, raising ethical concerns about genetic privacy.
Poking Holes in Genetic Privacyby Gina KolataThe New York TimesJune 16th, 2013For years now, a steady stream of research has eroded scientists’ faith that DNA can be held anonymously.
