CRISPR gene editing: The key benefits (and risks) of modifying our natural world

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, biotech/medical, genetics

What’s confusing is that some of the modifications we’re now considering could have been achieved years ago through traditional methods, so our views depend on what we think about the safety of new editing technologies, but also how desperate we are to address environmental degradation.

A process that began centuries ago with selective breeding has developed into genetic modification. We explore the consequences of these controversial tools.
