In this podcast we interview Nidal, a longtime friend of Connor Wander and a fellow Virginia Tech alumn. Nidal is has worked at a genetic diagnostics company and is close to finishing 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.
