The 1st healthy baby to have his genome sequenced before birth, but is it ethical?
from Medical Daily
Imagine growing up and knowing exactly what diseases you were genetically predisposed to. If it was Alzheimer's, would you take all possible measures to maintain your mental health? What if you were never actually predisposed to the disease and your parents had just interpreted your genome sequence wrong? These are questions many scientists are asking when it comes to sequencing the DNA of soon-to-be-born kids. And in part, they're asking them because of people like Razib Khan, the father of the first healthy baby to be born with his entire genome sequenced before birth.
