This week we will explore the methods and impacts of gene editing on humans and plants
Gene editing and manipulation is a newer, but rapidly growing field. We have the ability to change, add or delete genes in human embryos, adults and plants alike. We are going to explore both of these topics for this discussion. You are to CHOOSE ONE of the ideas below and click on the choice for more material and information.
Choice 1: Editing Human Embryos and Adults
Choice 2: Genetic Engineering of Plants
