Dr Emdee: Crispr stands for "clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats". It's probably the biggest breakthrough in biology in decades. This method allows scientists to input "correct dna sequence" where damaged code is on the double helix. Before there was various methods, but right now this is the best method. So for example diseases caused by genetic defects like the wrong protein strings can now be fixed.
I did just pick up a book on this, but I'm not too far into it so I'm kind of a rookie on the subject. Thoughts, opinions on this topic?
SoupDuFok: I've also recently been investigating crispr and find it fascinating with a lot of potential for both good and bad.
