SimpleGenetics(TM) for DNA day April 25, 2008

Posted by ramunas in genetic testing, media, personal, Simple Genetics.

Happy DNA day! This year in Europe we celebrate it for the first time officially. What a coincidence – yeasterday I’ve received gene T-shirt with mapped 1st chromosome from the magazine Science – wearing it all this day:)

On this occasion I would like to introduce you to SimpleGenetics(TM) genetic test reviews – it could be an independent wiki-based resource dedicated to the provision of reviews and unbiased information about commonly available genetic tests, its clinical validity and utility.

The project aims to improve the quality and accessibility of information regarding genetic tests and help to make informed choice decision for physicians and/or patients.

The information would be reviewed and edited by registered clinicians or scientists working in clinical genetic settings.

There is a preference for objective, scientific evidence-based, comprehensive reviews of clinical evidence and appreciate contribution of both genetic testing companies, clinicians and users to satisfy these goals.

I made this draft in February, and there is some information about Mammaprint available already. Let me know what you think about it and future involvement/contribution/etc. possibility.
