Jennifer Doudna, molecular biologist at University of California, Berkeley, explains CRISPR-Cas9 gene-editing technology at the 2016 Milken Institute Global Conference in Beverly Hills, CA, May 2016.
A new study found unexpected mutations in mice that underwent a CRISPR-Cas9 procedure.
That is, they can remove harmful genes that cause diseases and replace them with normal genes that don’tat least in theory.
While exciting to many, the idea has also elicited fears that the technology could create dangerous mutations and be used in unbridled ways, for example in attempts to create superhumans and designer babies.
An electric vehicle held the vehicular land speed record until around 1900.
The high cost, low top speed, and short range of battery electric vehicles, compared to later internal combustion engine vehicles, led to a worldwide decline in their use; although electric vehicles have continued to be used in the form of electric trains and other niche uses.
