Lee Hood on NOVA on March 28

Watch Cracking Your Genetic Code Preview on PBS. See more from NOVA.

We are eager to watch the NOVA documentary tonight on PBS called "Cracking Your Genetic Code." Lee Hood is one of the featured experts. The producer, Sarah Holt, began with a series of phone interviews late last summer before interviewing Lee on camera in her Boston studio.

Here's a preview radio segment on the Emily Rooney Show that features Holt and Dr. Rudy Tanzi, who also appears in the documentary. The segment brings up the concern about genome sequencing as potentially the "ultimate identity theft."

NOVA also has created a web page with related links – such as a Q&A about personal genetic testing and genetic testing dilemmas – which you can explore here.
