I am writing computer software that allows users to learn more about their own DNA and (optionally) allow some of that data to be used for research purposes.
I'm very concerned about a future/theoretical situation in which an insurance company uses that DNA data to disqualify someone on the basis of pre-existing conditions.
What privacy regulations exist that would assure users that there is no insurance risk in a collecting information about one's own DNA? (Primarily interested in the USA, but UK and EU would be valuable)
Outside of legal regulations, what should users look for when shopping among providers? (for quality, scope of services provided, etc)
