As increasing numbers of genes are identified and associated with human diseases, researchers are considering how to bring their discoveries from the research bench to the clinic. Holtzman, Murphy, Watson, and Barr, who were part of a Task Force on Genetic Testing sponsored by the National Institutes of Health and U.S. Department of Energy, discuss policies for regulating the development of genetic tests so that the full potential of gene discovery to help the general population can be realized… CONTINUE READING
