CeCe Moore is an investigative genetic genealogist and media consultant. She has worked as the genetic genealogist for the PBS Television documentary series Finding Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates, Jr., since 2013. She recently joined forces with Parabon Nanolabs to lead their new Genetic Genealogy Services for law enforcement unit.

The 2018 arrest of the Golden State serial killer in California made international headlines in part because police teamed up with genealogists to use familial DNA to track him down. This new method of sleuthing raises questions about how it's done, ethics and privacy, and the reliability of genetic and DNA tests.
