Over the course of less than a decade, whole genome sequencing has progressed from being one of our nation’s boldest scientific aspirations to becoming a readily available technique for determining the complete sequence of an individual’s deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) – that person’s unique genetic blueprint. This book focuses on the privacy and progress in whole genome sequencing; and provides a scientific background for policymakers in genetic testing. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical )
