Granting rights and personhood to apes

IEET’s George Dvorsky and NhRP’s Steven Wise spoke about the recent suits on behalf of the liberty of chimpanzees on Canadian radio on December 12, 2013.

I've heard about uplifting apes and other animals that are high on the intelligence spectrum to grant them more human like intelligence. Would one way of doing that is by incorporating specific human genes into those animals? Just a question out of curiosity. Also sense pretty much all great apes are endangered, will they even survive long enough to be uplifted?
