Education on the Benefits & Implications of Personal GeneticsWhat can an analysis of your DNA reveal about you, your family history, and your health? What might easy access to information about your genes mean for you and for society as a whole? The ability to learn about our genes and how they work has undergone an enormous leap forward in the last 10 years. pgEd aims to get people talking about the potential benefits and implications of the fast-approaching world of personal genetics.
