In order to learn more about personalized genetic testing, some pathology residents at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston will be looking at their own DNA, says the Boston Globe. Mark Boguski, a professor of pathology, developed the class, which will include lectures and researching the science behind the tests, after having his own genes tested by three different companies. He says this will "prepare our trainees — not because the technology is ready for prime time today, but people are using it, and it's clear it's going to play a role in the future."
