NHGRI launched a Reddit Science "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) series to share our genomics expertise with the public through online question and answer sessions. Through AMAs, anyone with an internet connection can pick the brains of our scientists and other genomics experts in real time and learn more about advances in genomics research that are improving people's lives.


What is a Reddit "Ask Me Anything"?

A Reddit AMA is an opportunity for interesting individuals to field questions about anything - and everything! Questions submitted to the AMA are vote based. Reddit users vote on which questions they find most interesting and lively discussions take place in the comments sections. In this format, answers from our experts can be more fully explained and follow-up questions or comments may be addressed so that the community has a clearer understanding of the research being discussed.
