Purpose The world can be a scary place. There are many disease causing organisms and genetic disorders that can make life difficult. As you read the chapter, be thinking about your family history of genetic disorders, how these disorders are passed on through generations, and what types of testing can be done to look for these alleles. In this exercise you will reflect on the pros and cons of genetic testing and how it may affect you. Task This week's discussion involves one part but you can choose from three options. Be sure to respond completely to the option you choose and argue your viewpoint in your post. Please remember to add a question to engage your classmates in the discussion. Option 1: Would you want to have your genes tested to know if you are at risk for a disorder? Why or why not? Option 2: Would you want your future children to be tested? Why or why not? Option 3: What might the consequences be of having this information (e.g. health insurance coverage, privacy, etc.)? NOTE: In order to create discussion "threads" or a continual discussion among groups of students, be sure to add a question at the end of each post. Please remember reply to at least 2 peers. Grading Criteria Your understanding of the role of genetic testing and how decisions about genetic testing may affect both parents and their offspring. Your peer responses are substantive and thoughtful and advance the discussion by introducing new insights or perspectives, and/or significantly deepening or broadening the conversation with questions. Your use of language: your writing should be clear, well-organized, and free from spelling and grammar errors.
