Britain approves gene editing of human embryos for research

Scientists call for international cooperation in human embryo editing

Beijing –  A Group of Scientists are pursuing international cooperation in human embryo editing.

Pei Duanqing with the Guangzhou Institute of Biomedicine and health of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and nine other scientists published an article in the latest online issue of Stem Cell.

The Stem Cell is a subsidiary of the academic journal, Cell, discussing the importance of sharing human embryo editing technology.

In light of recent editing developments, scientists and stakeholders from all nations should cooperate in this historic opportunity for medicine and basic human biology, the article said.

Altering human genomic DNA is not a new concept, but CRISPR methods are game changing.
