DNA Files on National Public Radio
The DNA Files: Unraveling the Mysteries of Genetics is a series of nine 1-hour nationally syndicated documentaries to be distributed this fall by National Public Radio (http://discover.npr.org/features/feature.jhtml?wfId=1009916). Hosted by NBC Dateline reporter John Hockenberry and supported in part by the DOE Human Genome Program, the series will explore both the science and the social, ethical, and legal implications of genetic developments. The voices of prominent researchers, people affected by advances in the clinical application of genetic medicine, members of the biotechnology industry, and others from related fields will provide real-life examples of the impact of genetic discoveries. In addition to public radio audiences, the series will target educators, scientists, and involved professionals. The programs will include such topics as DNA and behavior; prenatal genetic testing; predictive genetic tests; gene therapy; law and the genetics of identity; genetics and biotechnology; genetics of human evolution; plants, animals, and transgenics; and the Human Genome Project. The series will be available after November 5 to local public radio stations, which should be contacted for broadcast schedules. The DNA Files Web site will be expanded by November 1 to feature program information, audio excerpts, resources, and interactive scenarios (http://www.dnafiles.org).
