Abstract:

Richard Resnick explains genome sequencing in this TEDTalk, spelling out its uses and potential abuses. Sequencing is helping to extend human lives, with applications ranging from early cancer detection to the creation of drought-resistant, genetically-modified crops. But what if insurance companies begin to require genetic screening prior to issuing policies? There is already a lab that tests for allele 334 of the AVPR1 gene - also known as the cheating gene. Will romantic partners ask for the results of gene-screenings along with tests for STDs? Resnick is CEO of GenomeQuest, a maker of genomic software.
