As per a recent report, an Otago University student has shown a keen interest in getting his own DNA mapped by the New Zealand Genomics along with a copy of it to be given to him.
Steve Anderson, in his 50s, has urged the same with an aim to have a study of his own genes. While having vast knowledge in the genetics field, the former Wanaka farmer wants further enhancement in the domain.
His aim behind the wish of looking at the genetic coding in detail is to find cure for thousands of disorders occurring inside the body. It has been told that almost four and a half thousand disorders of genes are possible in human body. And what is responsible for the same may be family members with similar coding or any ethical issues.
While the man is having a firm belief that people in future would also be largely benefitted by studying their genetic coding, the genetics service has been hesitating to provide the same to him. Chief Executive Tony Lough worries that three billion pieces of data might be misused or misinterpreted by a student.
However, Mr. Anderson continues, "If you have a problem coming up in the future and you yourself have been able to work that out then what's the chance of insurance".
