Again, Eugenics and Epstein (Fragment)

EPSTEIN WAS A FRONT
“One of his lesser-known plans involved sequencing people's genomes.”
“The goal was to create a search engine capable of pinpointing genetic links to diseases like cancer”
“The plan had three main elements: First, a small team of scientists would gather genetic material from people living in St. Thomas and sequence their DNA to create catalog of population-level genetics data.”
“Second, the team would design a search engine that would allow them to look for links to particular diseases.”
“Finally, they would create a ‘virtual laboratory’ for performing experiments using computer models.”
“Finally, they would create a ‘virtual laboratory’ for performing experiments using computer models.”
“In theory, such a facility would free the scientists of the need for ‘wet’ laboratories, which are designed for conducting research on biological substances and other potentially hazardous materials.”
