Genome Editing


Objectives:  You will be able to

Define what gene editing is.

Differentiate what is altered to change a gene.

Identify uses of gene editing.


              Do you know that there is a way to change our body's makeup on a microscopic level?  Scientists have discovered how to do just that using a process called genome or gene editing in the late 1900s.  Gene editing has changed from its original technique since then and has become efficient and cost effective enough to use in regular research since the early 2000s. (National Human Genome Research Institute, 2017)  Before we learn how gene editing works, we first need to understand what genes and a few other important structures are.
