The Consumer Genetics Show has kicked off in Boston. Tech Review says that it is focusing on "what's possible with today's technology, as well as grapple with the controversies that have grown along with the field." According to Robert Green, one of the organizers and a neurologist at Boston University, "the most important issues in consumer genomics are around consumer utility and whether the kind of information available right now is useful to consumers medically and personally, and whether it has any potential for harm, either through misleading people, misunderstanding, or false reassurance."
