Genetic engineering: Gene editing in humans

Genetic engineering is a prevailing new technology for creating particular modifications to a human’s heredities. Modern scientific developments have turned genetic engineering into becoming more effectual, accurate, and adaptable. Current developments have prompted a very high interest from around the world. That is, in terms of the potential engineering in which gene editing in human can advance for a well-being.

Technology advancement and gene editing in humans

The rate at which genetic engineering innovations are being advanced and applied has left many people concerned about whether suitable measurements are being considered and rules are being set to administer new technology. Therefore, the question must be raised – Should humans be permitted to use genetic engineering technology to improve basic human traits? . For example, intelligence, physical traits such as eye colour, or athletic capabilities. Gene editing involves changing a single DNA letter in a gene. Many different technologies such as CRISPR/Cas9 can be of use to modify at precise parts in DNA. Although there is improvement of accuracy in editing, there are still concerns that gene modification can make changes elsewhere in DNA that might cause harm. Technologies to ensure every cell in an embryo contains the desired change still need improvements.

 Ethical issues in genetic engineering

Identify an ethical issue regarding the impact of engineering on contemporary society. Further, develop an argumentative research paper addressing the issue gene editing. Be clear about which ethical framework you are using to make your argument and why.  More importantly, because there are multiple types of genetic engineering, you will need to specify which type or types you are discussing since they have different effects and potential (ethical) consequences.

Potential legislation and regulations in genetic engineering

Depending on  your conclusions , you may also want to consider discussing potential legislation and regulations of said genetic engineering. Papers should be approximately 3000 words in length, follow standard ABC format (Introduction, Body, Conclusion), and present a strong thesis.  Papers should include a clear, descriptive title. A separate title page is optional, but not necessary. Support claims with evidence from secondary sources, which should  cite in-text using APA-style and  in an APA-style reference list.
