SFS01: Genetic Testing and Diagnostics

In this podcast we interview Nidal Sarsour, a longtime friend of Connor Wander and a fellow Virginia Tech alumn.  Nidal is currently working at a genetic diagnostics company and is working on his Master’s Degree in Bioinformatics at Johns Hopkins University. We go over conditions that might prompt genetic testing, and speculate on the future of genetic testing in medicine.  This podcast is currently in draft format, and is missing the companion piece where we plan to explain the topics discussed, like DNA, epigenetics, cancer genes, and computational biology.
