Poll on interest in personal genome information

Report of a story in the news   |   By Dr Philippa Brice   |   Published 19 September 2011

The journal Nature is conducting a survey on how interested people are in obtaining personal genome information, produced in cooperation with Genomes Unzipped blog community.  

Whilst Nature readers are typically highly scientifically literate, and the purpose of the poll is to ‘get a sense of how many researchers are actually peering into their own genomes’, no prior ‘knowledge or interest in genome-sequencing technology’ is needed. 

Participants can also opt for inclusion in a draw to win an Amazon gift card, and results will be released in a future news piece in the journal.
