Controversial Gene Editing Tech Could Be Hard to Control

Controversial Gene Editing Tech Could Be Hard to Control But, another possible use has been gene drive (or the process of manipulating how genes are inherited).For a while now, scientists have suggested that we use CRISPR to, in essence, rid the world of disease-carrying mosquitos — savings tens of millions of lives.

CRISPR Used to Genetically Modify Human Embryo in the US

CRISPR Used to Genetically Modify Human Embryo in the US Researchers in the US have limited CRISPR experiments on the human genome, but for the first time, a US team has successfully edited a human embryo with CRISPR.In doing so, the scientists at Oregon Health and Science University also showed CRISPR has the potential to eliminate genetic diseases.

Snap a Selfie to Detect Pancreatic Cancer

Snap a Selfie to Detect Pancreatic Cancer Smile, you’re on cancer camera: Researchers are developing an app that could allow people to screen for disease by snapping a selfie.When bilirubin levels are high, the skin and whites of the eyes appear yellow, or jaundiced—one of the earliest symptoms of pancreatic cancer.

Paging Dr. AI: Neural Network Invents Disturbing Diseases

Paging Dr. AI: Neural Network Invents Disturbing Diseases Research scientist and Internet goddess Janelle Shane trained her artificial intelligence platform on 3,765 common medical conditions—with hilarious results.“Given enough examples of real-world diseases, a neural network should be able to invent enough plausible-sounding syndromes to satisfy any hypochondriac,” Shane wrote in a blog post.
