First Genetically Modified Human
First Genetically Modified Human Embryos In US May Open Gates To 'Designer Babies'
 UNITED STATES OF AMERICA , 27-July-2017  6:33:41 AM
For the first time, scientists in the US have successfully used gene-editing tools on human embryos to correct defective DNA that cause inherited diseases. According to critics, the experiment could open the gates to the world of "designer babies".

The effort, led by Shoukhrat Mitalipov of Oregon Health and Science University in the US, involved changing the DNA of a large number of one-cell embryos with the controversial gene-editing technique CRISPR.

Previous reports of editing human embryos were all by scientists in China.

For ethical reasons, the embryos were not allowed to develop for more than a few days.

The experiments are a milestone in journey towards the birth of the first genetically modified humans, according to the 'MIT Technology Review'
