一周的视频提示: Direct to Consumer Genetic Testing and Genetic Counselling

在OpenHelix, we remember the days when people didn’t even barely have documentation with their software when they put it out (yah, 我知道, it still varies). But outreach really is getting better. There are journals now that are also enforcing more reader-friendly ways to describe the research, with non-jargon summaries and some terrific visual aids.

越来越多, there are also videos associated with papers. I just came across this one, and thought it was a nice example of an important issue for non-scientists to access.

So this looks at direct-to-consumer (DTC) services available in Europe, but some of the same ones are available in the US. 当然, 在美国, as we muck around with health care again and what is/is not a pre-existing condition, the advice might be different. 叹息.
