People usually are aware of the privacy risks of publish-ing photos online, but these risks are less evident when sharing humangenomes. Modern photos and sequenced genomes are both digital rep-resentations of real lives. They contain private information that maycompromise people’s privacy, and still, their highest value is most oftimes achieved only when sharing them with others. In this work, wepresent an analogy between the privacy aspects of sharing photos andsharing genomes, which clarifies the privacy risks in the latter to thegeneral public. Additionally, we illustrate an alternative informed modelto share genomic data according to the privacy-sensitivity level of eachportion. This article is a call to arms for a collaborative work between ge-neticists and security experts to build more effective methods to system-atically protect privacy, whilst promoting the accessibility and sharingof genomes [less ▲]
