The race to sequence the human genome was also billed as a race to end disease. So what happened? With CRISPR-Cas9, Precision Medicine and genetic testing all making headlines, Retro Report investigates.

Finding the Code: The Race to Sequence the Human Genome and What It Means

Finding the Code, the first in a three-part series with STAT, tells the story of one of biology’s most spectacular achievements. The race to sequence the human genome was billed as a way to end disease. Here’s where it led.

Fixing the Code: Genetically Engineering Your DNA to Cure Disease

For the past 20 years, scientists have been trying to cure disease by altering our DNA. Fixing the Code, the second in our three-part series with STAT, examines how with CRISPR Cas-9 gene editing and the revival of gene therapy, they’re closer than ever.

Selling the Code: Can Genetic Testing Services Really Predict Your Future?

Lifesaving genetic tests were among the goals for scientists who sequenced the human genome back in the 1990s. Today, companies market genetic tests for everything from cancer to diet and exercise. But how much can tests like 23andme really predict?
