- For Beginners
CRISPR technology has the potential to transform medicine, science and beyond. Yet genome editing also faces myriad challenges: scientific, political and ethical. It may still be decades before genome editing is reliable, affordable and morally defensible – and accepted by the public. Kevin Davies’ book elegantly weaves in the competition and conflict surrounding the discovery, development and explosion in CRISPR applications with the very serious moral and societal questions inevitably raised.
