Scientists have reportedly carried out the first project of embryo editing in the U.S., according to a report from the MIT Technology Review.

 

Although scientists in China have reportedly already conducted such experiments, this is the first time embryo editing has been carried out in the U.S.

 

The process involved a controversial gene-editing technique known as CRISPR. The project was undertaken by scientists at Oregon Health and Science University, and led by scientist Shoukhrat Mitalipov.

Scientists believe this new technology has the potential to revolutionize the world. It would supposedly make it possible to eradicate many genetic diseases by altering the gene code in embryos who would no longer pass these diseased genes onto their children.

 

Embryo editing may lead to what has been termed “designer babies.” Although the technology could lead to diseases not being passed on to future generations, many religious organizations, civil society groups, and biotech companies have expressed concerns that tampering with the genetic code can have far-reaching consequences.
