BioLogic: The future of genome sequencing in healthcare, with Heidi Rehm and Robert Gree‪n‬ BioLogic

    • Science

Genome sequencing may someday become a routine part of medical care, but questions still surround best practices for returning genetic information to patients in a way that will optimally impact their health. Geneticists Robert Green and Heidi Rehm explain their research into developing such protocols, the benefits and risks inherent in providing genetic information, and the uncertain future of legal protections against genetic discrimination.
