Human genome sequencing: the real ethical dilemmas
This study’s results are going to disappoint many people invested in the history of the ancient Egyptians – the Afrocentists who say they were black, modern Egyptians who view themselves as their lineal descendants and the fringe folks who claim a link between the ancients and extraterrestrials. In the first full genome sequencing of ancient Egyptians, spanning […]
Will Genius Be Genetically Engineered? With significant advances in genetic analysis, genome sequencing and precision gene editing, it’s increasingly likely that embryo selection and genetic engineering will be used to prevent disease and increase the intelligence of future children. Dr. Stephen Hsu joins Stefan Molyneux to discuss human intelligence and the rapidly expanding technology which could soon enable embryo selection for both desirable and undesirable traits. Dr. Stephen Hsu was…
Doctors Sift Through Patients' Genomes To Solve Medical Mysteries
An international team of scientists has sequenced the complete genome of the woolly mammoth. A US team is already attempting to study the animals' characteristics by inserting mammoth genes into elephant stem cells.
The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) is a comprehensive and coordinated effort to accelerate our understanding of the molecular basis of cancer through the application of genome analysis technologies, including large-scale genome sequencing.
