The Closet Geneticist

In Cambridge, Massachusetts, Katherine Aull is doing her own genetics experiment. In her closet she is testing her own DNA for mutations that might possibly carry a harmful, if not fatal, disease if left untreated: hematochromatosis. A disease that her father has been diagnosed with.

You can read all about Ms. Aull's DNA work at the Boston Globe or watch the video .
