About

Welcome to Genetics Digest.

Our goal is to provide credible, accurate information about the latest advancements in DNA analysis and genome technology. We have news alerts for scientists and DNA enthusiasts and unbiased product reviews for consumers looking to purchase anything related to the field of genetics, so that scientists and consumers can make educated decisions when studying DNA.

We are a team of writers and scientists who are passionate about all things DNA—from double helixes to chromosomes to mitochondrions, we love it all.

With new trends emerging every day (like DNA ancestry tests) as genetic information becomes more accessible to common consumers, we feel it’s necessary that the complex science involved becomes more accessible to common consumers as well.

We’ve found that many magazines about Genetics are a little TOO sciencey, so that the consumers unfamiliar with the field have no idea what they’re reading. On the other hand, the non-science magazines are written by non-scientists, and they often butcher their information a little bit…

Genetics Digest bridges the gap, where scientists and common consumers can come together to get the same information and understand it. So, while we provide useful information to scientists, we make sure to keep our lingo as readable to the common man as possible without sacrificing any accuracy in the information.

Charlie Lunan is a science writer with a background in financial journalism who follows the intersection of genetics, evolution, infectious disease, pollution and business. In addition to his freelance work, he produces a website promoting outdoor recreation and sustainable living within a four-hour drive of his home in Charlotte, N.C.

Being a geneticist with a statistical background, I have been actively involved in studying influence of genetics on drug response.
I have now gone from specific to the general, and my interest in the field is deep, abiding and long term. I hope to be counted in my field with a strong background in epidemiology, statistics and clinical research.
My current interest include use of Mendelian Randomization to unearth causal association of biomarkers.
