I really liked learning about personal genomics from watching this interview. I especially liked learning about the psychology behind the projects conducted. One example was learning about how many friends of Church, when pregnant, did not want to even know their future baby's gender. This was very surprising to me as I would assume that since your baby is such a large part of your life, most people would want to know the gender prior to prepare. I also was surprised by the fact that 80% of babies that receive a certain gender assignment in the US are female in contrast to in China. I did some research and found that indeed women have a preference for women while men do not have a significant preference, probably why in the US the female gender is more often chosen than the male gender. In contrast, in China and India, perhaps due to traditional gender roles and much more restricting societal structures males are preferred.
If I had conducted the interview I probably would ask about what the future of genomics is and what the dangers could be, especially in relation to science fiction, a genre I enjoy very much. One book I read recently was Brave New World, and it clearly demonstrates the damage that hypercontrolled genomics can cause to an entire society. Another is Oryx and Crake, where genetically engineered humans take over the world after a wipeout of others. I would like to ask what the ethical and moral repercussions of adjusting one's genome are.
