More research is paving the way for gamete selection, not just embryo/zygote selection

infoproc.blogspot.com/2012/07/genome-sequencing-of-human-sperm.html   The entire genomes of 91 human sperm from one man have been sequenced by Stanford University researchers. The results provide a fascinating glimpse into naturally occurring genetic variation in one individual, and are the first to report the whole-genome sequence of a human gamete — the only cells that become a child and…

Zygote/embryo selection eugenics is nearing

infoproc.blogspot.dk/2012/07/whole-genome-sequence-from-10-to-20.html “This new Nature paper describes a genotyping technique that can be performed using only a small number of human cells. One implication is that we are close to non-destructive sequencing of human gametes and zygotes. For example, parents participating in IVF can potentially genotype fertilized eggs before deciding which to implant. “ also infoproc.blogspot.dk/2010/10/maxwells-demon-and-genetic-engineering.html…
