China uses DNA to Track It's people, with the Help of American Expertise

in informationwar •  2 months ago

"Collecting genetic material is a key part of China’s campaign, according to human rights groups and Uighur activists. They say a comprehensive DNA database could be used to chase down any Uighurs who resist conforming to the campaign.

Police forces in the United States and elsewhere use genetic material from family members to find suspects and solve crimes. Chinese officials, who are building a broad nationwide database of DNA samples, have cited the crime-fighting benefits of China’s own genetic studies." https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/21/business/china-xinjiang-uighur-dna-thermo-fisher.html?fbclid=IwAR3-qkEi6NYUgt97lFBomG5uWLXK36WK0UwVcb6NBL9A7kZr0pDYT42QCm8
