Adoptees' views and experiences of direct-to-consumer (DTC) genomic testing: an exploratory interview study from the UK.

Genomics and health genomic testing for ancestry and wellbeing may be helpful to adoptees looking to fill in the gaps in their family history. The latest UK House of Commons Science and Technology Committee report did not discuss the benefits or risks for adopted people specifically, but the committee did note that solid evidence of potential or dangers for any user of a DTC testing kit is limited. In this research, semi-structured interviews were conducted with ten UK adult adoptees recruited via social media, with ten UK adult adoptees recruited through social media. The interview transcripts revealed three key areas: decision makers of longing, uncertainty, and standardization of DNA kit use; information seekers can gain clarity but avoid new troubling details; and negotiation Visibility to birth family and commercial third parties was identified three main themes. In addition, adoptees' investigation into data privacy issues appears to have been hampered by publicly disclosing personal information about themselves in their wider adoption search.
