Carlos Barata, student at La Salle, Girona, for "Genome editing"

Carlos Barata, student at La Salle, Girona

This project aims, in the first instance, to define the current technical capacities of genome editing, examining the headlines and rumours that circulate on the internet, to provide a realistic account of this science. And, secondly, to analyze the main ethical problems raised by this technology and its solutions, and to reflect on how we should develop it in the future to ensure it is used appropriately.
