What if you had a way to learn about your past, while predicting your future? Would you be interested in accessing information that may have clues to explain who you are today? On March 6th, Science North held it’s 9th Science Café downtown at the Laughing Buddha. The topic was genetics, and more specifically how our genetic profile links us to our past, explains our present, and could give us insight to the future.
Along with moderator Dana Murchison, panelists included Dr. Amadeo Parissenti, an Affiliate Scientist with the Tumour Biology Research Group at Health Sciences North, Dr. Ryan Parr, the Chief Scientific Officer of Mitomics Inc. and Heather Dorman, a Genetic Counsellor at Health Sciences North. The audience enjoyed mulling over several topics, and there was no shortage of questions. Here’s one for you to think about: would you want to know your entire genetic profile, even if it showed something that would drastically alter your future?
