Consumer Genetics Conference

As many know, the consumer genetics field has taken quite a blow from recent events, including FDA's investigation of 23andMe. Consequently, we have made the difficult decision to postpone this year's conference while there is so much uncertainty among potential speakers and participants. We look forward to continued discussion on the topic of consumer genetics, and we hope for everyone's sake that the nascent industry finds more stability in the future.
