Guest: Matthew J. Ferber, Ph.D.

Host: Darryl S. Chutka, M.D. [@chutkaMD]

Over the past decade or so, we’ve learned a great deal about the human genome, and this has allowed us to determine which medical conditions our patients are at an increased risk of developing and which medications may be best suited for their medical problems. In addition to the clinical genetic tests we use in our practice, direct to consumer home genetic testing has become extremely popular. This podcast will review home genetic testing and what information patients can expect with these tests, whether the information they receive is accurate and how home genetic testing differs from the genetic tests we order. Our guest is Matthew J. Ferber, Ph.D., a clinical molecular geneticist at the Mayo Clinic.
