Our genetic makeup has fascinated scientists and medical researchers for decades. In recent years, there have been significant advances in the field of gene editing, which allows scientists to rewrite
Gene editing is a breakthrough technology that may be able to help fix faulty DNA. A Chinese scientist caused an uproar when he altered the DNA of twin baby girls as embryos. These changes are permanent.
With all the outcry over Green Book‘s Best Picture Oscar win, an arguably more baffling win — at least according the moviegoers — at this year’s Academy Awards got a bit lost in the shuffle: Bohemian award
They aren’t regulated under international pronouncements in the same way humans are. The ability to precisely edit genes with technology such as CRISPR has changed the bounds of possibility for science.
