I think that your genetic information should be kept confidential between you and whomever you wish to disclose it to... similar to the conversations held between friends, personal psychologists, or lawyers. I would like to know about my own DNA just like I'd like to know if I had cancer or was HIV positive.You should never have to mandatorily present it at any time unless you are a suspect for a crime. Just like family history, religion, and skin colour, your DNA should not be a factor during a job interview; but if telling your doctor about it could save your life... well, who wouldn't want to share?
