Abstract: Imagine being a newborn baby, discharged home after delivery, with a most unusual gift, a compact disc (CD) carrying all data on "My Genome". The parents would be most anxious to play it on their home PC. Soon, they could discover whether their child has been spared those major single gene disorders which uncle John had before he died young. The doctors had told them they could be selected out when they had opted for pre-gestational diagnosis and selective fertilisation.
