Human Embryos Genetically Modified: A Review

Vibhuti Astha Lakra

The modification of an organism, “genetically” is been a fascinating field of research for researcher for long time. Much of research is done in terms of Gene Editing and Genetic Modification. Tools such as chemicals and radiation to cause mutations are now outdated as it used to cost a lot of time and money. The efficiency was also not to the level to which it was desired as researchers were unable to target the specific position that they wanted in the genome. For Gene editing it’s a new era known as Regularly Interspaced, Short Palindromic Repeat (CRISPR) Technology. This is a much efficient technology in comparison to all others which existed before. This article is a review on the whole process of the development and efficiency of the technology and also on the till date future perspective of it.
