Controversial study that claimed Crispr gene editing is dangerous is retracted after scientists admit they CAN'T replicate their results



Crispr-Cas9 gene editing technology has been hailed as humanity's route to 'designer babies' who are tailored with desirable genetic traits. 
Crispr can effectively 'cut and paste' small sections of DNA out of a genome and replace or delete harmful genes. 
This ability to 'customise' genes has led to speculation it could also be used to eradicate cancer and Huntington's disease.
Last year, research was published which claimed the popular process could introduce hundreds of unintended and potentially harmful mutations into DNA.
Now, these researchers have been forced to admit their research... read more
