Abstract

Revolutionary scientific and technological advances have led to a dramatic increase in the practice of genetic testing for medical and non-medical purposes. Genetic science and technology is advancing at a significant pace, with scientists continuing to make genetic discoveries as to the makeup of the human body and the cause and effect of disease, disability and other conditions. These discoveries are facilitating technological innovation and development of a range of genetic tests that are becoming increasingly refined and sophisticated. Therefore, as genetic science continues to advance, genetic technologies inevitably become more accessible and available, in the medical context, in third-party contexts and in society in general.
