If you stay on top of science and technology news, you probably have some familiarity with CRISPR gene editing technology. It’s a tool that allows researchers to alter DNA and modify how human or animal genes function. It’s potentially a world-changing technology for eliminating genetic disorders, but it also calls into question how much power we should take on in that process.
While you likely have heard about CRISPR, chances are you likely don’t understand how it exactly functions. The video below will take you through that explanation with ease and allow you to understand a tool that is on the cutting edge of genetics in the modern era.
