Human Genome Editing and Ethical Considerations.
Sci Eng Ethics. 2016 Apr; 22(2):597-9.SE

Abstract

Editing human germline genes may act as boon in some genetic and other disorders. Recent editing of the genome of the human embryo with the CRISPR/Cas9 editing tool generated a debate amongst top scientists of the world for the ethical considerations regarding its effect on the future generations. It needs to be seen as to what transformation human gene editing brings to humankind in the times to come.
