Jenkin and Barbara David Theater within Alumni Hall on Park University's Parkville Campus
Tuesday, March 19, 2019
6:00pm- Poster Session
7:00pm - Presentation


Join Bryant McAllister, Associate Professor in the Department of Biology at The University of Iowa for a discussion on how with a single mouse-click a variety of sophisticated genetic tests are available directly to consumers at a relatively low cost but what surprises might you be signing up for. Advances in human genetics over the past 30 years have enabled the emergence and growth of this “recreational genetics” marketplace. His goal is to introduce the science underlying these tests, reveal potential unintended findings that can result from these tests, and consider privacy issues that have arisen from the explosive growth of this industry.
