The future of genetic testing
Watson and Crick worked out the structure of DNA in the 1950s. Technology in genetics now allows us to sequence the full human genome. Watson had his genome sequenced in 2007 at a cost of USD1.5 million. In 2016 the cost of sequencing is now under $1000. In a few years, everyone will have their genome sequenced. And scientists are working out how to edit the human genome. What next?
In this Café Scientifique, part of the Science Alive 2017 programme, Joyce will tell us more about genetic testing and how it will impact reproduction.
Join the conversation with us!
