Genetics has been turned upside down or fast-forwarded with the discovery of a neat DNA scissors known as the CRISPR-CAS9 System.

Here is a recent short animation from Nature Magazine which explores some of its immediate possibilities.

Brave New World to use a worn phrase. This genetic technology is fast-moving with implications that deserve our attention but trying to keep regulations up-to-date and to fully consider ethical issues are behind the science. It is likely to remain this way.

I think if you continue to watch you will find a discussion of these issues.
