DNA editing in human embryos
A new era has begun...
American scientists for the first time successfully edited DNA from human embryos in order to erase a hereditary cardiac problem they had, opening the gate to a new, and perhaps misunderstanding, era.
Embryos were only allowed to grow for a few days because, as scientists claim, they were never meant to be implanted into a human uterus for pregnancy. Nevertheless, experiments will continue with the ultimate goal of "correcting" all genetic anomalies in humans.
