The issue of incidental data, which has always existed in genetics, is becoming exponential with the advent of genomic medicine. The issue of secondary data, involving an active search for variants in a list of so-called actionable genes, is very popular in the USA, whereas Europeans are urging caution. 
In this webinar, we would like to take a look at the evolution of recommendations made by certain European countries, as well as those of the ESHG.
