Channel News Asia – “Why It Matters 4: Ep 4: Should We Hack Our DNA?”

Hack your DNA, and change your destiny. CRISPR-Cas9 is a gene editing tool that can eradicate diseases, and maybe one day even enhance our looks, personalities, and abilities. How does it do that, and are we ready for it? Joshua finds out what conditions he could be passing down to his children with a DNA test, and questions if CRISPR could write them away.

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.
