GOOD TOPIC—-BUT A SURPRISE TOPIC !
Rewrite DNA and cure all diseases?
For the first time in history, a new scientific discovery on DNA will correct genetic defects in human embryos Sun Yat-Sen University’s team immediately contacted the BBC to communicate the new scientific discovery.
The University team carried out a highly precise “chemical surgery” on human embryos which enabled a genetic disease to be removed.
This genetic technique is called “basic editing” and allows to correct a single error on the three billion “letters” that make up the genetic code of our DNA.
The new technology is able to modify the basic elements of DNA which are: adenine, cytosine, guanine and thymine. These elements are also known with the letters A, C, G and T.
All instructions for creating and developing a human body are all gathered in these elements.
The “basic editing” is a progression of a known genetic editing technique, whose name…
