That was the basic plot from the movie Species.

Alien DNA sequence is received from deep space transmission and combined by
Earth with human DNA to create a human/alien hybrid bent on world conquest.

I hope to think the folks at Nasa will watch that movie first in case we
ever do get such a message from deep space. :D
