Opinion on Polygenic Prediction

Your assignment is to write an op-ed (opinion piece) about the use of SNP based polygenic prediction or polygenic scores (PGS/ GPS/ PRS). 2 pages, double spaced, Times New Roman font The goal of the paper is NOT to report on how a polygenic score is constructed from GWAS scores (though this can be introduced in a short paragraph if you wish), but rather to describe your opinion on the use of polygenic prediction for behavioral or medical phenotypes. You must 1) identify an ethical issue or concern, 2) take a stance or opinion, and 3) make a case for your argument. Example prompts may include concerns about polygenic prediction on fetuses or children, concerns about using polygenic prediction for a specific phenotype, etc. Please provide at least 2 sources in APA format at the end of the paper to back up your argument.
