Every participant is eligible for a t-shirt along with some great prizes like an iPhone, laser pointer, and catered lunch for your lab. If you get a tee, send me a pic of you wearing it (or just the t-shirt itself, if you’d prefer) and I’ll feature you in my Geeky DNA T-Shirts series.
- The Genomics Policy Research Unit at the University of Glamorgan has been awarded a grant for their project – Genetic Literacy and Family History: A Study of Young People in the South Wales Valleys.

As personal genomics develops, it will be increasingly important for their generation and the ones after them to understand how genetic technologies can affect their lives.
