Genome editing

Genome editing techniques such as the CRISPR-Cas9 system are transforming many areas of biological research.

The first stage of this project considered the impact of genome editing in research and the range of questions to which this gives rise. The findings of this review have now been published. A new Working Party has been established which will develop practical ethical guidance for the application of genome editing in humans.
