New Security Concerns about DTC Genetic Testing Raised

In a UC Davis study, researchers described methods by which someone could learn database genotypes by uploading multiple datasets. For example, a person who uploads approximately 900 genomes could recover at least one allele at SNP sites across up to 82% of the genome of a median person of European ancestries.
