siliconindia | | June 20184Our Bollywood movies have mostly confined our thought on DNA testing to parental testing (to establish if someone is the biological parent of the child). But in reality, it is more than what meet the eyes. From Forensic testing to help identify suspects or victims in a criminal investigation, Gene therapy to test parents or foetuses for genetic conditions or birth defects, to Genetic genoalogy to find out more about someone's ancestry, the use of DNA testing is wide spreading its wings. Today, nutritionists too have stepped in using DNA tests to ascertain the nutrition history and frame better nutrition plans for the clients accordingly to the reports, and doctors use it to find cancer risk to detailed screening of newborns for inherited diseases. Indeed its a revolution in the healthcare sector!However, with the direct to consumer genetic health kits, the data collected from these tests may result in worse, as consumers who self-diagnose themselves will make treatment decisions without first consulting their physician. On the other hand, these consumers add their genetic code to the private database of DNA. And to get a hold of these billion dollar data, equity firms are even investing heavily in such firms. Hence, there is an immense need to vest people with property rights over their DNA to prevent misuse of their most personal private possession. Hence, being an ethical DNA testing clinic is the soul of the business.
