Thanks, everyone, for your comments on our program at UC Berkeley. I just wanted to reassure all the readers that this proposal passed through a rigorous Human Subjects review process, that the exercise is completely optional, that students will sign a consent form (and if they don't sign it we will destroy their swabs immediately), that minors are required to have their parents sign a consent form as well, that there will be no way for anyone but the student him- or herself to identify which data is his or hers, and that all genetic material will be incinerated after these three genes have been analyzed.
Well, thanks for your assurances, Mr. Schwartz.
