Not surprisingly, as health care costs continue to increase and the costs of genetic
testing decrease, employers may view genetic
testing as a cost-saving technique by trying to weed out employees with genetic
markers for disease.
But since these cells are so rare--virtually undetectable in some women--and tricky to distinguish from a mother's own cells, Bianchi and other researchers put these circulating cells on the back burner as a new source for genetic

Future phases of the collaboration will center on the development of analytical tools to support molecular models of genetic
disease to identify the commonalities of complex genetic
For example, different soybean varieties can have the inherent genetic
potential for a certain level of oil or protein content.
As a result of this random genetic
inheritance, he suggests, we have greater scope for freedom than if our genes had been chosen for us.
More recently, scientists have found that the genetic
variation associated with breast cancer appears to be more prevalent among Ashkenazi Jewish women.
And the red maple produces a wide genetic
diversity from its seed, which means a red maple in your backyard might produce very different-looking offspring.
