Personal Genetics Education Project

Video series: Debating the issues

Meet Alison, Chris, Paul, and the people who participated in our roundtable discussion. They discuss the distinction between a trait versus a disease and how reproductive technologies should be used. Many questions are raised, and there are no simple answers. What do you think? We hope their stories inspire you to add your voice to the conversation. We invite you to post comments on pgEd’s YouTube channel or share your thoughts through the comment box below. Thank you!
