Research 2.0: Social Networking and Direct-To-Consumer (DTC) Genomics - The American Journal of Bioethics

This target article discusses the need for new approaches to studying DTC genomics using social network analysis to identify the impact of obtaining, sharing, and using PGI.

Add another acronym to the pile: "PGI" = personal genomic information.

Interesting study published by 2 researchers from the Stanford Center for Biomedical Ethics, published in The American Journal of Bioethics, Vol. 9, Issue 6 & 7, June 2009, pages 35-44.
