China wants to punish the researchers, He Jiankui, a result of the genetic modification of several babies. As the state-run Xinhua news Agency reports, investigators came to the province of Guangdong to the conclusion that the physician has violated the law. He had organised the Experiment without any outside help and is financed in violation of the ethics and integrity of scientific research is violated, it said.
The doctor had altered the genetic material through artificial insemination begotten twin sisters. The scientist said he had taken seven pairs of artificial insemination, sperm and ova, in order to remove the embryos with the Genverfahren Crispr/Cas9 to a specific Gene. He works as a private lecturer at the Southern University of Science and Technology in the southern Chinese city of Shenzhen, claimed to have the children’s resistant to HIV.
according to The report, all three children should remain under observation. Open, against which the Chinese laws, the doctor has failed.
What is Crispr? The genetic engineering Crispr –
The world of tomorrow and of the man himself. This is made possible by a new genetic engineering: Crispr/Cas9, in short, Crispr. With it, researchers want to make plants and animals. And heal the people of Aids, cancer, or genetic and hereditary diseases. The mechanism is simple, cheap and highly efficient. That’s what makes him so promising for science and economy – and so controversial.
Only a few years ago, the researchers have made the inside Emmanuelle Charpentier and Jennifer Doudna, the crucial discovery. They described how a self-defense system used by bacteria against viruses, as a General purpose factory stuff in the genome editing. Within months, the realization has changed the work in laboratories around the world. Even today, researchers are using Crispr/Cas9, for example in the field of biotechnology. Chinese researchers are testing them on human, if not enabled embryos to be life. the
it is Already: Crispr is everyday life. But how, when, why and for whom you should allow the genome tailoring? Yet these questions are still open. THE TIME and TIME ONLINE have to make of technology a focus dedicated to Crispr – Evolution-it-yourself.
