Deb Liu, the CEO of Ancestry, and Francis Collins, the previous director of the NIH and leader of the Human Genome project, delve into the fascinating world of genetic science, exploring its implications on our understanding of human identity, ancestry and health. Throughout the conversation they also share stories and reflections on how their Christian faith motivates their work and sheds light on the ethical and moral considerations that arise when navigating the complex world of genetic research and its applications.
Hillary note: This was a GREAT conversation and I hope you enjoy it.
Had no problems listening, and enjoyed the interviews. Good discussion of privacy concerns and commercial use of genetic data. It was interesting to consider how commercial use actually makes advances more affordable and available to the masses.
Somehow, I never listened to this one. Never saw it. But will check it out tomorrow probably. It’s going to be a long week at work lol. 3am-330pm M-F and during the 10 hour work period excluding breaks and lunches, they want us to move and stack off the conveyors 16 pieces a minute and they weigh 10lbs. So doing double gripped front raises 9,600 or so times will be challenging if it’s even possible but that’s at 100% proficiency and they stated we just need to stay above 60%. Never done it with that weight before and so no idea what will happen. But if it will be a fine time to zone out to podcasts as I become a living robot lol.
