Genome testing is genetic testing. Genetic testing is the analysis of human DNA, RNA or protein. Genetic testing can be used to screen for possible diseases or conditions, for paternity testing, for forensics, to screen for birth defects in fetuses, and to predict the possibility of future illnesses, among many other uses.
Genetic testing was made possible by the Human Genome Project, which was a 13-year project completed in 2003, which resulted in a complete map of the 20,000 to 25,000 genes that comprise human DNA. The project was coordinated by the U.S. Department of Energy and the National Institute of Health. As with many new tools in the medical field, it has expanded opportunities and given rise to new ethical questions and discussions.
