In this short video op ed, Steve Mercer, '94, calls for statutory regulation of individual property rights to DNA information.

From the intro by NBC News:

"Are we on the verge of another Cambridge Analytica-type meltdown? Lawyer Stephen Mercer thinks so. Except this time, it’s our own DNA we should be worried about. Mercer has practiced at the intersection of DNA and civil liberties since 2002, when he litigated the first constitutional challenge to Maryland’s DNA databank."
