Today we do something a little different. We’re joined by two commentators to look back over the past month’s headlines. Laura Hercher is a genetic counselor on the faculty at Sarah Lawrence College. She’s also a regular contributor to the DNAExchange blog. Nathan Pearson is the Senior Director of Scientific Engagement and Public Outreach at the New York Genome Center.
