New York Times best-selling author Robin Cook stops by to talk about his latest medical thriller, Genesis, and some of the implications of using ancestral DNA from genetic testing as an investigative tool to track down and identify unknown persons who may be connected to crimes.
Robin also talks about the changing landscape of the genetic and emotional changes in what it means to be a “father” given the number of people using the DNA kits to find out who their “anonymous” sperm donor fathers are, and the legal measures being looked at to circumvent privacy protections in order to contact them.
