"Confidentiality and Sharing Genetic Information with Relatives." The Lancet 375 (2010): 1507-509. 1 May 2010. Web. 15 Nov. 2016.
Anneke Lucassen and Michael Parker talk about how how sharing genetic information to relative can help save lives in their article “Confidentiality and sharing genetic information with relatives.” They talk about all of the “what ifs” about if a person decides to tell relatives about a disease that they could potentially have. Examples of real live scenarios are used to help explain how sharing this information could save a person 's life. They also give an argument against telling relatives because it is our right to keep personal information to ourselves.

Panneer Chelvam and M. N. Norazmi give case examples to how DNA profiling is used in crimes and what techniques are used to identify the person. They start out talking about deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) itself and explains that every cell in an individual 's body, with the exception of red blood cells and eggs or sperm, contains the full genetic program for that individual in its DNA. Then, it goes on to talk about the Combined DNA Index System (CODIS) and how it blends computer and DNA technologies into an effective tool for comparing DNA profiles. This article is part of the Forensic Science Programme in the school of health sciences which make the article credible for the crime branch of DNA profiling. The drawback to this article is that it is written in Malaysia about United States crimes which questions the research and examples they used. I really like how they started out talking about what DNA itself is so that readers that are new to the topic can get a good
