Abstract

Two recent studies published in Science Translational Medicine (Lo et al., 2010; Bell et al., 2011) demonstrate the potential of applying the latest genome-sequencing technologies to preconception carrier testing and noninvasive prenatal genetic diagnosis. These studies shine new light on old ethical, legal, and social concerns associated with genetic technology and deserve careful discussion.
