The Penn State Eberly College of Science

GENETIC TESTING: Cheryl Keller, associate research professor of biochemistry and molecular biology at Penn State, stops by the studio to talk about genetic testing and direct-to-consumer genetics. What can these genetics tests tell us? How are tests for things like Tay-Sachs disease or Sickle-cell disease different from direct-to-consumer genetic tests? How reliable are they?
