Genetics offers medical hope. Genetic research is cutting-edge. It's used to develop cancer drugs. It's in our cells and easily shared. This affects privacy and security. What can be done legally or illegally with genetic data? Article 14 and Article 21 also play a huge role here as genetics research is concerned with privacy and health care rights. Genetic discrimination is based on an individual's health, habits, racial genetic history, or other community-based information derived from the gene. Such discrimination is linked to broader social and racial discriminatory practices. India is yet still to cope up with the future of genetics research, its uses, and testing. There are many advantages as well of genetics research and we come to know how it can help us build a better and healthy future for ourselves.
