Choice 1: Editing Human Embryos and Adults
Gene editing and manipulation is a newer, but rapidly growing field. We have the ability to change, add or delete genes in human embryos, adults and plants alike. We are going to explore both of these topics for this discussion.
Briefly summarize the main take-home points of the research – make sure to include scientific terminology and discussion
With respect to gene editing in human embryos, most research is focused on fixing or removing harmful mutations that may cause diseases, but there are some fears of creating designer babies. In addition, we can edit the genes in adults, if we use a targeted approach. Read the articles below, and then respond to the prompt.
What is your take on the research? Are there any benefits and/or costs? Should we be focusing on this? Is there reason for concern?
