Synthetic Human Genome, Gene Drives
Synthetic Human Genome, Gene Drives | On Science Blogs: "So one plan is to link together chunks of synthetic DNA, making a researcher-created human genome that can control a cell in a lab dish. This, the 25 researchers advocating it in an open-access Science paper say, will be called Human Genome Project-Write. That’s in contrast with the first HGP, completed in stages earlier in this century, which they call Human Genome Project-Read. Find a list of the “stepping stone” projects the researchers are proposing at GEN."
