What Is Crispr?

Men's Health (UK) - - The Tech Issue – Gm Superfoods -

It may sound like yet an­other gluten-free food start-up in east Lon­don, but Crispr is a new molec­u­lar sys­tem that sci­en­tists can use to ma­nip­u­late DNA – more quickly, sim­ply and ac­cu­rately than ever be­fore. As well as its many po­ten­tial ap­pli­ca­tions in mak­ing our fruits richer in nu­tri­ents or our grains re­sis­tant to cli­mate change, it could also one day be used to en­gi­neer hu­man em­bryos – al­though there are sig­nif­i­cant eth­i­cal con­sid­er­a­tions.
