The perks and pitfalls of DNA testing

Terms like DNA profiling, genetic testing and genome sequencing have become a part of our everyday lexicon, and many of us are intrigued by what links, secrets and problems can be found in our genetic code. What really happens when you submit a DNA sample for analysis? Who is actually using it and what can it show about your health, past and future? And what are the ethical, social and legal issues around this most personal form of data?

This wide-ranging discussion will explore the place of DNA data in today’s technology-driven world.
