Ep. 04: Augmented Babies

You can customize your bag, your phone, your food, but what about your baby? In 2003, the entire human genome was sequenced, and this is important as it has allowed researchers to begin to understand the blueprint for building a person. Till this day, we still do not know what every gene codes for, but if we do, does it mean that we can fulfil a parent’s wish and genetically modify a baby’s genes? What are the ethical concerns? In this episode, join us as we talk to an accomplished professor and researcher who was part of the Human Genome Project, Prof Maude E. Phipps, about creating augmented babies.Stream this podcast for free on iTunes or Spotify to learn more about Gender Identity.Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/1A6zXereojyCb2BTmzlgxWWe are now also available on Apple Podcast accessible here.
