Scientists Conduct Grisly Experiments Modifying the DNA of Human Embryos – LifeNews.com

Scientists in Oregon have successfully genetically modified human embryos, according to researchpublished earlier this month. The researchers used a gene editing technique called CRISPR to repair a disease-causing mutation. In altering the DNA code of human embryos, explains the MIT Technology Review, the objective of scientists is to show that they can eradicate or correct genes that cause inherited disease, like the blood condition beta-thalassemia Continue reading
