WHO issues recommendations for Gene-editing
July 13, 2021
The World Health Organization has issued new recommendations on human genome editing.
It has recommended to setup an international registry of gene-editing experiments.
It has also proposed a way for people to report concerns about unethical or unsafe research.
In 2018, Chinese scientist He Jiankui announced that his research had led to the birth of human twins from embryos whose DNA had been altered with the Crispr gene-editing technology.
WHO had formed an advisory committee on human genome editing after this incident.
