FARMINGTON, Conn. (AP) - The University of Connecticut is hosting a national conference to explore the ethics of genomic research.

The three-day conference will open on Monday at the UConn Health and the Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine in Farmington.

As science makes advances in mapping the genome, questions have arisen about what access people should have to information that could tell them such things as if someone is susceptible to a disease.

The conference’s keynote speaker will be Stephanie Devaney, the deputy director of the All of Us Research Program at the National Institutes of Health.
