Your genome in your pocket

In a time not far away each of us can know all the information contained in its DNA, each of us can take its genome in his own pocket! What consequences will have this knowledge? How will it change our lives? And our health? And our ethics? Are we ready for this? Scholars of Genetics of the University of Naples Federico II will welcome visitors, illustrating a video to your computer, with the intention of stimulating curiosity and provoke debate on this issue

Visitors will confront at the end with a choice: you will want to know the information contained in its genome, with all the ensuing consequences, or not?
