the promising and perilous science of gene editing
The goal of this assignment is to build a collection of resources that we all can use to learn more about CRISPR.
Each of you shall search and share a link to a paper, video, podcast, tutorial or other and add a short summary describing what the resource offers to the learner.

The promising and perilous science of gene editing
Published in IDEAS.TED.COM | Author Dan Kedmey
This paper offers an answer to the question: â€œShould we use CRISPR to experiment with Living human embryos?â€ by the woman who discovered CRISPR (Jennifer Doudna).
The article explores the pros, cons and ethics of the use of this powerful genetic tool, exposing the lucrative side of science, the legal and political ramifications and the need for a the scientific community to agree and dictate bioethics rules to regulate the advances of this technology.
Itâ€™s a great read for those interested in the ethics around CRISPR and wonder what the scientific community position is.
Repeated resources are not allowed so the sooner you post yours the better.
– To complete the assignment read at least one of the resources posted by one of your classmates and comment on it.
