PODCAST: Genetic testing of sperm donors

In this conversation with GenePeeks co-founder Anne Morriss, we talk about:

  • the rare genetic issue that led her to create the company
  • what new technology enables geneticists to do — and not do
  • walk through the nature of recessive genes
  • learn how GenePeeks weeds out about 15 percent of sperm donors whose particular combination with a woman’s genetic make-up might be best to avoid.

Though this genetic testing service is not for everyone, it is new technology for those who are seeking to minimize certain unanticipated risks.
