    Totally agree with Kathryn’s comment! How to capture what we do that can’t be replaced by a chat bot. And I would say that expressing it succinctly (a word or three, not a paragraph) is necessary, especially when it comes to advocating to non-genetics professionals. I feel like we need new terminology before I feel ready to part with the old.
