Is Genetic Genealogy the Next Facebook of Science?

Last Saturday morning at the first International Conference for Genetic Genealogy in Chevy Chase, Maryland, Genographic Project Director and National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Dr. Spencer Wells delivered the Keynote to an audience of 300 genetic genealogists. He spoke about the popularity of the field and how fast consumer genetics has grown since the launch of The Genographic Project in 2005.

Could genetic genealogy become popular outside of the genealogy and medical communities? Perhaps. You can read a short article by Miguel Vilar about Saturday’s presentations in the National Geographic web site at http://goo.gl/qrCHWP.
