Fiction is often used as a vehicle to explore the implications of scientific progress, and the cutting-edge science of genomics has, in recent years, captured the popular imagination.

At a special Broad Institute public event on January 3rd, 2013, a panel of experts addressed some of the ethical and sociocultural issues raised by depictions of genomics in film, and helped separate science fact from science fiction.

Panelists include: Jay Clayton (Director, The Curb Center for Art, Enterprise, and Public Policy, Vanderbilt University); George Church
(Professor of Genetics at Harvard Medical School; Director of personalgenomes.org); Lauren Tomaselli (Director of Curriculum and Training, Personal Genetics Education Project); and Chad Nusbaum (Co-Director, Genome Sequencing and Analysis Program and Scientific Director, Broad Technology Labs).
