- Auckland University professor Andrew Shelling says personal genomics companies are offering “health horoscopes.” On the other hand, he admits that access to genetic testing in New Zealand is very limited.
“New Zealand is doing an appalling job of providing adequate genetic testing. We’re well behind Australia and the rest of the world.”
So what’s an info-seeking person to do?
- Here’s a genetic genealogy quagmire. DNA testing of children from the polygamist religious group in West Texas to sort
our* out family relationships has commenced. Problem is, many of the children are closely related and have parents who are genetically related as well.
Because of the groupâ€™s isolation, Dr. Einum said he thought it was likely that the parents of any given child were related by a common ancestor, and that any man examined as a possible father could share genetic traits with many other men in the group.
