In CRISPR’s world: Genome editing and the politics of global science

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The advent of technologies of genome editing have opened a new chapter in the history of biotechnology, offering means to achieve precise, targeted, reliable, genetic modifications in virtually any organism, from microbe to mammal. The advent of CRISPR/Cas9 has made genome editing accessible to a wide range of researchers engaged in an enormous range of projects. The technique is “cheap, quick and easy to use” radically expanding access to powerful tools to modify genomes, organisms, and ecosystems (Ledford, 2015a, 2015b; NASEM 2017a). It has sparked imaginations of a mushrooming menagerie of bioengineered creatures as humanity turns its editorial eye to life at all levels of the evolutionary ladder.
