It's OK to Edit Your Kids' Genes: New at Reason

last monthNews : Reason

This summer, American scientists reported successfully editing out a harmful gene from the genomes of human embryos. Researchers led by Shoukhrat Mitalipov—a reproductive biology specialist at the Oregon Health and Science University—used CRISPR gene editing to achieve this result. Show More Summary

Pain Biology, Aging, and the Brain's Reward System at Penn's 12th Annual Translational Medicine Symposium

The latest science in why pain afflicts people differently, precision medicine and brain disorders, and how the bat genome informs the study of human aging, among many other topics, will be covered.

New Neandertal and archaic human genomes advance our understanding of human evolution

(American Association for the Advancement of Science) Two new studies on ancient genomes provide valuable insights into the lives of our ancestors and their cousins, the Neandertals. First, scientists have sequenced a new genome of a female Neandertal, which is only the second genome of the species to be fully sequenced with such a high level of quality.

Listening for the Public Voice

On Aug. 3, the scientific article in Nature finally gave us some facts about the much-hyped experiments that involved editing the genomes of human embryos at the Center for Embryonic Cell and Gene Therapy at Oregon Health and Science University. Show More Summary

Attitudes on human genome editing vary, but all agree conversation is necessary

(University of Wisconsin-Madison) In a study published Aug. 11 in the journal Science, researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Temple University assessed what people in the United States think about the uses of human genome editing and how their attitudes may drive public discussion.

Cancer genomics: Human metastases under scrutiny

4 months agoAcademics : Nature AOP

Sequences of the DNA and RNA of 500 human cancers that have spread from their primary site in the body take us a step closer to the convergence of basic science and patient benefit.

Opinion: Human genome editing—we should all have a say

Shoukhrat Mitalipov, a reproductive biologist at Oregon Health and Science University, is nothing if not a pioneer. In 2007, his team published proof-of-principle research in primates showing it was possible to derive stem cells from cloned primate embryos. Show More Summary
