“DNA Testing for Ancestry and Health Information” by Leta Steffen (Promega Corporation)
DNA testing has moved out of the clinical labs over the last decade and is easily available straight to consumers.
Dr. Steffen is an Applications Scientist at Promega Corporation based in Madison, WI, where she is involved with molecular biology research and training. She received a B.A. in Biology and Physics from Lawrence University and a Ph.D. in Genetics from Harvard University. As a graduate student, Leta mapped novel genetic mutations causing muscular dystrophy, using zebrafish as a model organism.
This event is free and open to the public.
