Personal Genetics Education Project

Genome Magazine features pgEd in the Spring 2018 issue

The new issue of Genome Magazine is out, and pgEd is thrilled to be featured alongside some of our collaborators and former students.

What we talk about when we talk about personal genetics“, Genome Magazine by Maureen Salamon.

“The project [tries to] present that there’s a blending of genetics and environmental factors responsible for most anything we care about,” Parker says. “That’s been a real challenge for people who’ve been working in genetics and genomics from the beginning — to try to create interest and get funding and sell people on the importance of the work without hyping what genetics really contributes.”
