Personalized genetic screening tests are now commercially available. Are they a tool for a disease-free future or a white elephant? Medical geneticists Cynthia Kenyon, Muin Khoury, and Nobel Laureate Harold Varmus discuss the science and the issues, in a forum moderated by former NBC correspondent Charles Sabine. Recorded at the Chan Centre at the University of British Columbia in March 2009.
