Runa Sivertsen, a former member of the Faroes Parliament, speaks during an interview at Klaksvik, in the Faroe Islands, under the sovereignty of Denmark, on Monday, Dec. 3, 2012. Sivertsen, who also heads a group that advocates on behalf of patients with a genetic condition called glycogen storage disease, says there has been virtually no national discussion of FarGen, the proposed plan to sequence the islands' citizens' genomes and use the data for medical treatment and research.
