This program by Dr. Linda Strausbaugh, Center for Applied Genetics and Technology, UConn, will take place in the Biology/Physics Building, Storrs campus, Room 130.
Genetic testing that is currently commercially available promises the individual information on everything from past ancestry to future susceptibility to disease. This lecture will introduce you to the basic science and innovative technologies that enable this new revolution in genetic testing. The ethical, legal, and social implications of direct-to-consumer genetic testing will also be explored.
