Gene editing can now change an entire species- forever. What are going to be its repercussions?

CRISPRs, first recognized in Escherichia coli in 1987, is found within most of bacteria . The name stands for Clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats , segments of prokaryotic DNA containing short repetitions of base sequences. It Provides them Immunity agaist the infection of phages (viruses). All migroorganisms compete to survie in a microenvironment , CRISPR system helps in the evolution of bacteria by giving them an advantage of resisting attacks from viruses by degrading their DNA with a protein named as cas9 protein .Another system helps in recording information about the virus so that the bacteria can induce immune resposes faster in case of further infections. Scientists have developed a way to use the same machinery to cut human genes at particular sites and inactivate them.How can this be the future of healthcare ? There are certain genes called Oncogenes which increases the chances of cancer in humans,these genes can be downregulated before cancer developes. Genes causing heriditary diseases can be inacticvated while the feutus is at a cellular developement stage. It will help millions people in the world to have a healthy offsprings without the fear of letting them into a life of suffering and pain due to the heriditary defect which they have battled on their own throughout their life. CRISPR has sparked young scientists to dream about the possibilities of immortality since the same technique can be used to stop the cellular mechanisms regulating aging and cell cycle as a way to prolonge our lifespan ! Know more about other commercially available gene editing tools ? Tell me about your views on how CRISPR can change the way we battle diseases ? Will human race become immortal in the future using advanced gene editing tools ?

E-commerce firms fail to meet their grand goals. Is the funding/valuation slowdown not a market slowdown but result of poor performance or over promises by startups?

Which State Is A Model State For India? Gujarat, Maharashtra, Tamilnadu Or Kerala?

Rohit pande had posted

Interesting debate, some would posit it as a rate of growth debate and hence Bihar / Bengal would come into the picture. The changes are embedded into the culture and hav



I dont think any state can be given the status of model state .India is a country with diverse culture and traditions ,Each state is unique with its own attractions and people . Mallu here :D
