Have you Purchased an Online Genetic Test or Considered
Researchers in the Psychology Department at the University
of Guelph are conducting a study exploring people’s
experiences with online genetic testing (e.g. paternity
tests, finding out your chances of getting cancer, researching
your ancestry). These are tests of a genetic sample that
you buy directly from a company rather than ordering them
through your doctor.
You are invited to participate if you have ever bought or
considered buying a genetic test directly from a company.
You will be entered into a draw for one of two iPads (approx.
$500 value) as thanks for your time (chances of winning
are roughly 1 in 100). The online survey takes only 15-20
minutes of your time.
