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.
