Erfect Humans. What'S So Great About Genetically Modified

What 's so great about genetically modified human? For starts, one being is given the power to create people and fix them before they are even born. Genetically engineered organisms or GMO. Genetic engineering is changing a being 's genetic code. They take a section of DNA and insert something else(the prospects of designer babies by Catalano Michael). GMO have much argument with it.
Some people believe that it is against their morals. A church in Scotland is against this. They believe it is wrong to be “playing God.” On the other hand, people are saying that if they were given a chance to fix their child, they were genetically and that if the world has the option to change the genetic code of humans they should. The…show more content… This is an example of how much good can come to being able to genetically modify humans because doing it this time saved this little and I am sure it could save another kid in the future. If people were more accepting of gene therapy, then the FDA would not be too strict, then they would have more legroom to get fundings CRISPR/Cas9 is a type of treatment that is common during gene therapy. This kind of therapy engages an enzyme complex called CRISPR/Cas9. It is found in bacteria. It works together with Ca9, and it is an enzyme that cuts DNA, so pretty much this is like scissors that can cut DNA. How does CRISPR/cas9 work? Well, In the beginning, CRISPR/Cas9 complex looks around the cell 's DNA till it spots and connects to a sequence that correlates to the CRISPR. This was all said by Biochemist John Reidhaar-Olson. So in other terms, the Enzyme will scan the DNA in the cell until it finds its match, Then it will attach itself to that sequence of the DNA. A university in Japan injected CRISPR/Cas9 into human embryos to fix a fatal blood disease called Thalassaemia. They got the Embryos from a local clinic. None of the embryos could be born because they were fertilized with two sperms. In the end, the Embryos were found not to have the fatal blood diseases anymore. Thus showing how useful CRISPR/Cas9 is when doing gene therapy. (Tanya Lewis)
