PSIP Description: 
Sequencing the Genome and ten-time Grammy Award-winning artist Bobby McFerrin are highlighted.
Long Description: 
Sequencing the Genome - Science has made rapid strides in genetic testing---especially in children---to understand serious birth defects or congenital abnormalities, or the child's predisposition to disease later in life. But as Lucky Severson reports, guidelines for the use of this technology are lacking, leaving the questions who should be tested, and how much should parents be told. Bobby McFerrin - Ten-time Grammy Award-winning artist Bobby McFerrin has released a new album, "spirityouall," which includes his adaptions of traditional African-American spirituals and original devotional songs that he wrote. McFerrin says the new project reflects his deeply-held Christian faith and talks with Kim Lawton about spirituality and the power of music.
