NEW: Berkeley DNA plan draws ethics concerns

That could represent a conflict of interest for the professors, who are involved in personal private ventures in genetic testing and personalized medicine. Direct-to-consumer genetics products, now being offered by private firms such as 23 And Me, have raised a number of issues.  For $499, you can have your DNA analyzed, which will tell you how likely you are to contract certain diseases.   However, many federal agencies object to the procedure, saying that it is still in its infancy and has not proven reliable.  The FDA does not sanction genetic testing.  The American Medical [more...]

The Human Provenance Project « Free Movement

It sounds like the title of a dystopian science fiction film, and it is every bit as bad as it sounds. The first I heard of it was on 14th September 2009 after this letter was circulated to UKBA stakeholders. I had a little rant about it at the time in another forum, complaining there was something unpleasantly eugenicist about it, lamenting the daft liberal arts graduates who approved it who understand neither science nor statistics and suggesting they start measuring skull size and penis length for good measure. Free Movement is a proud graduate in, er, history, incidentally. The Human [more...]

Africa Rising 2010: Three Paths to Dual Citizenship

members of the African Diaspora can now pursue citizenship in countries in which those from their ethnic group now reside. The test, which draws on DNA data from throughout Africa, shows you where the specific branch of your ethnic group resides today. It will not tell you where they were when your ancestors were stolen away, but then the borders established by the colonial powers were and are artificial and do not reflect the normal migration patterns that have held for millennia. We believe this DNA testing can be further certified by African scientists if necessary so that African [more...]

House Votes To Expand National DNA Database To Include People Arrested But Not Convicted The vote was 357 – 32, with all 32 no votes coming from Republicans. If approved by the Senate, and signed into law by the President, it would have the federal government paying states (with money it doesn’t have, naturally) to extract from every single arrestee a DNA sample whether the person arrested is ultimately convicted or not. Innocent? Doesn’t matter. In the database you go. Millions of Americans arrested for but not convicted of crimes will likely have their DNA forcibly extracted and added [more...]

Glossary | Mouth Swab | easyDNA

Mouth Swabs Mouth swabs are used to gather DNA samples. Swabs have been used for years in the field of medicine to collect various tissues samples for different types of tests. With advances in the field of genetic testing, oral swabs or mouth swabs have developed which are the standard means for DNA sampling. A mouth swab is very much like cotton bud, which is of course sterile. It is rubbed on the mouth against the cheeks and under the tongue. The swab is then sent back to be tested by the DNA testing company that supplied the DNA testing kit. Unlike traditional blood draws which can be [more...]

The method used to collect the sample for the DNA test is chorionic villus sampling or CVS, if the pregnancy is in the period 10-13 weeks after the baby was conceived. This procedure includes the doctor inserting a thin needle or a fine tube guided by ultrasound, into the womb through the uterus and cervix to obtain a sample of chorionic villi that composes the placenta, therefore home DNA testing is not possible. The DNA samples will be tested and analyzed. When the mother is between 14 to 24 weeks pregnant, the method used to collect the baby’s sample is called amniocentesis which is [more...]
