Wat zijn CRISPR babies?

Een Chinese wetenschapper beweert de eerste genetisch gemodificeerde baby’s ter wereld te hebben gemaakt: tweelingmeisjes die resistent zijn tegen hiv. De resultaten van het experiment van He Jiankui moeten nog onafhankelijk worden geverifieerd, maar hebben desalniettemin tot een veroordeling in de wetenschappelijke gemeenschap geleid en tot gesprekken over hoe een krachtig hulpmiddel voor het bewerken van genen, bekend als CRISPR, moet worden gebruikt.

Hij’s genbewerking werd uitgevoerd in het geheim en negeerde internationale normen voor embryonale experimenten. Zijn aankondiging op een wereldwijde conferentie over gen-editing in Hongkong schokte vorige week wetenschappers, waaronder de Nobelprijswinnend bioloog David Baltimore, die de wetenschappelijke bewering van He een ‘falen van zelfregulering door de wetenschappelijke gemeenschap’ noemde.

Het bewerken van CRISPR-gen wordt als controversieel beschouwd omdat bewerkingen in het genoom kunnen worden doorgegeven aan toekomstige generaties. Wetenschappers onderzoeken momenteel manieren om genbewerking te gebruiken om ongeneeslijke erfelijke ziekten zoals Alzheimer en ALS te voorkomen.

Wat kan genetische bewerking bereiken en wat zijn de ethische en veiligheidskwesties die moeten worden overwogen voordat deze bij meer mensen wordt toegepast?

Trying to separate the treatment of diseases from enhancement is futile. When CRISPR embryos become the norm, there’s no going back. Before long, it would be argued that it’s unethical to NOT give babies desireable traits.

CRISPR-CAS9 i Would like to name this as The Devil Device #CRISPR

As always, the media is biased and irrational. I’m exited to see what #CRISPRbabies will bring to the world. It must hurt the USA to see China taking the lead in the field of human genome. Congratulations to the researcher and my blessings for him to create much stronger humans in future!

Dr. Mengele would be proud, his research lives on

So many ethical laws will be broken and its sad we live in a world where people only want to see a dominant group succeed so if you have this type of Technology wouldn’t that mean you’re eventually going to cut out other demographics if the power is in your hand to edit how someone looks how someone will be immune to diseases. This will also play in the way of social economics …who’s really going to be able to afford this type of editing ..only a small selective group And in regards to the babies becoming immune to the HIV virus that does not change the fact that they can they can still have contact with so many other disease and infections and at what cost is their immunity?

Reminds me of the movie Gattaca

New scientific research, as always, controversial at first, but later the norm!

Watch the movie “GATTACA”. It covers this exact subject and is an absolutely fantastic movie on top of it! Very Cathartic.

So much wrong with ramming this tech forward.

Satan thought more knowledge would be good for Eve , and Eve agreed …. Adam went along with it , and now, here we are … nope, it’s NOT a good thing and will surely be man’s undoing , if CERN doesn’t get there first

I’m so happy to have been young years ago.

Different countries had different laws. You can exert your opinion on gene editing but the ultimate results law dependent and country dependent. Gene editing in various forms is beyond anyone’s control. How we damage control it is important

Ooh! this is very interesting thing where is my friend Jim’aale plz join soon

Nice aranged PR stunt to try and give the mainstream/offical messing with DNA seem like its the safe one…

People have been modifying humanity’s genes by deciding whom to breed with forever. CRSPR just makes the process faster and less random. Why should our genetic future be controlled by social customs and ignorance when better methods exist?

Im sure the Genomics institute has had this information for use and refused to use it.
