Genetic Engineering

Genetic Engineering is the direct manipulation of an organism’s genome using biotechnology. It is a set of technologies used to change the genetic makeup of cells, including the transfer of genes within and across species boundaries to produce improved or novel organisms. New DNA may be inserted in the host genome by first isolating and copying the genetic material of interest using molecular cloning methods to generate a DNA sequence, or by synthesizing the DNA, and then inserting this construct into the host organism. Genes may be removed, or “knocked out”, using a nuclease. Gene targeting is a different technique that uses homologous recombination to change an endogenous gene, and can be used to delete a gene, remove exons, add a gene, or introduce point mutations.

In a creepy turn of events, scientists have now grown the first human-sheep hybrids, more specifically sheep embryos with human cells. Researchers from Stanford University and the University of California presented their new work at the annual American Association for the Advancement of Science in Austin, Texas, on Sunday, the Guardian reported.
For the first time, scientists have developed human eggs, outside the of the human body, from the earliest stages in ovarian tissue and grown them to full maturity.
Crispr, the gene editing tool is set to spark a 'genetic revolution,' one problem, no one knows the consequence.
In the name of fighting diseases, China is justifying eugenics and is leading the way on gene selection rather than "people selection."
Taking possession to a whole new level, scientists have figured out how to hack the brain to control limbs and body movements.
One of the biggest challenges of the 21st century will also be one of the most Biblical, the artificial womb. Science and technology have brought mankind to the brink of where if we cross this line there is no going back.
CRISPR is all the rage of gene editing, and can cause thousands of unwanted mutations claim doctors from Columbia, Stanford, and the University of Iowa who recently published their disturbing findings on the topic.
Super-humans and the end of all disease, that is the supposed agenda of biotechnology. But in reality, these scientists just don't want to die, most likely because they know who they'll have to meet.
Sometime very soon the first humans to be genetically edited will be born, and the United States just paved the way.
Welcome to the brave new world, where science now fully creates humans, and you choose your children from test tubes.
Scientists have now discovered how to repair 'broken genes' to cure incurable diseases - and potentially bring about satans miracles.
Designer Babies are rapidly becoming a reality, for the first time a biologist from Sweden recently publicized his successful editing of human DNA in embryos. Mainly paving the way for both designer babies and removing the hand of God from creation.
