Summary
"Home DNA testing companies, such as 23 and Me and AncestryDNA, are at peak popularity, fulfilling our desires to know where we come from and what our future might look like. But questions have arisen about who owns test results and whether testing companies have the right to sell customers' data to pharmaceutical companies and other outlets. Yet home DNA tests have been credited with catching criminals, such as the Golden State Killer. Containing viewpoints from diverse voices in the field, this volume examines the controversies surrounding home DNA tests."-- Provided by publisher.

Contents
The importance of opposing viewpoints -- Introduction -- Who owns DNA test results? Testing companies claim consumers own their genetic information / Leah Larkin -- Buyer beware! AncestryDNA can identify you and your genetic relatives / Joel Winston -- A DNA data breach could mean rejections of insurance, credit, and employment--or worse / Angela Chen -- Testing companies do not share your data without your consent / Rob Verger --Should testing companies reserve some rights to DNA data? When testing companies retain rights they can sell consumer data / Genevieve Rajewski -- There's a buck to be made by testing DNA for reasons other than ancestry / Emily Mullin -- The United States needs to regulate direct-to-consumer DNA testing / Sarah F.

Summary
"It's inside every living plant and animal, from the tiniest seed to the person standing next to you, but how much do you know about DNA? This book gives children an in-depth look at DNA and its role in all living things -- from why we have different-colored eyes to why we age. Discover what DNA is, what it does, and how it shapes our lives, including inheritance and why we look like our parents; forensic science and how DNA evidence helps catch criminals; and genetic engineering and if we could bring dinosaurs back to life. With fun illustrated DNA characters, clear diagrams, and astonishing photographs, children will love learning about themselves and this all-important molecule."-- Provided by publisher.

Summary
How does smell work? Specifically, how do olfactory sensory neurons project to their targets in the olfactory bulb, where smell is processed? Justin McKinnon has hired fresh-faced graduate student Emily to study that question. What Justin hasn't told Emily is that two other scientists in the lab, Aeden and Allegra, are working on a very similar topic, and their findings may compete with her research. And to Emily's great surprise, her rational mind is unsettled by Aeden.
