Do gender and personality traits (BFI-10) influence attitude towards genetic research?

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/conference proceedingArticle in proceedingResearchpeer-review


There is a continuing trend of making genetic research commercially available. It is not only 23andme that offers various types of genetic tests anymore. People do not need to rely on doctor's opinion, they can purchase genetic testing kits and test themselves. Unfortunately, not all available tests are reliable; as the case of Theranos showed recently. The paper aims to investigate if there is any impact of gender and of personality traits on attitude towards genetic research. Big Five Inventory is used to measure personality traits.
