NEW DELHI: The government is exploring recreational genetics, a new area in the field of genome testing, for reducing India’s disease burden.
Private DNA testing laboratories offering recreational genetics tests are already burgeoning in India. Now, the department of biotechnology has initiated a programme called human genetics and genome analysis in which the country’s genetic resource is being utilized to develop baseline data initially on various ethnic groups for disease susceptibility. Several private laboratories are also using recreational genetic tests to offer a tailor-made lifestyle, diet, weight loss, and disease prevention plan for each individual for maintaining optimal health and fitness.
