It was the slowest pace of growth since last June.

So far, though, employers seem to be sticking with those temporary contracts.

BackgroundCheck.org
While DNA may be small, it's packed with information that has the potential to cause some pretty big problems. Uncontrolled access to this information, whether in a medical or law enforcement setting, could set individuals up for violations of privacy and discrimination, and as genetic testing becomes more common and inexpensive, the issues surrounding the protection of genetic information will become ever more pressing concerns in the larger public discourse.
