A Review of Chatbots and Artificial Intelligence in Genetic Counseling

Multiple groups have investigated using chatbots to expand genetic counseling services. A review is needed to summarize how research groups are implementing artificial intelligence in genetic counseling and patient perspectives of receiving genetic services through chatbots.

Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency Predictive Testing Perspectives

Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency is a genetic condition caused by common variants in the SERPINA1 gene. Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency can cause liver and lung disease, but there are targeted treatments available once people are symptomatic. Many people are identified after a family member is diagnosed, but this is also included on direct to consumer genetic testing. People who have been identified with alpha-1 antitrypsin depending by genetic testing without clinical symptoms will be interviewed to discover their perspective of their diagnostic process, feelings about treatment options, and interaction with the healthcare system. This project would require an IRB review, which can extend the project timeline by 1-3 months.
