Important notice

doctorportal Learning is on the move as we will be launching a new website very shortly. If you would like to sign up to dp Learning now to register for CPD learning or to use our CPD tracker, please email support@doctorportal.com.au so we can assist you. If you are already signed up to doctorportal Learning, your login will work in the new site so you can continue to enrol for learning, complete an online module, or access your CPD tracker report.

To access and/or sign up for other resources such as Jobs Board, Bookshop or InSight+, please go to www.mja.com.au, or click the relevant menu item and you will be redirected.

All other doctorportal services, such as Find A Doctor, are no longer available.

[Correspondence] Socialising the genome

The science isn’t the only aspect of genomics that can seem impenetrable to the average person; the word itself has the power to confuse. Our work has shown that members of the public often assume there might be a mistake in pronunciation, asking helpfully: “Did you mean to say gnome when you said genome?” We have also discovered that a substantial gap exists between how genomic scientists and health professionals think genomics should be discussed and what the public actually understands.
