From devices to bodies: a tale on DNA data collection

Watch the discussion at RightsCon Online about the rising collection of our DNA, increasingly becoming a key data source for police as well as private companies. The convergence of private data interests, the political climate in nations such as the US and Brazil, and the onset of the coronavirus pandemic are further fuelling the rise in data collection, raising concerns for abuses of power in the context of a lack of proper regulations across the world.

The conversation, joined by GeneWatch’s Executive Director Helen Wallace, covers some of the historical origins of genetic research, the overblown scientific claims made by private DNA companies, the necessary safeguards required to prevent miscarriages of justice, and recent international legal precedents limiting unfettered collection of innocent people’s DNA.
