Interview with Professor Roger Foo from A*STAR’s Genome Institute of Singapore (GIS) on Peranakan DNA Genome Study (Prof Roger Foo)
Scientists from A*STAR’s Genome Institute of Singapore (GIS) have completed a DNA study on Peranakan Singaporeans as part of a project to help them learn more about their ancestry. The findings will be released in August at a public forum at the Asian Civilisations Museum. In an interview with Channel NewsAsia, Professor Roger Foo from GIS, who was the Principal Investigator for this project, spoke about how this study came about and the kinds of insights that people can expect from this project.
