Today we explored some advances in genetics. For centuries we have tried to choose specific traits through selective breeding but now we can select traits using genetic engineering! We can make corrections in genomes using CRISPR (which edits mistakes at the DNA level). There other advances using stem cells and gene therapies. It's amazing how we can fix DNA but it opens the door to some ethical dilemmas, ya?!?! IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY explore some of the advances in genetics for tomorrow's SWYK.
