In a first, scientists rid human embryos of a potentially fatal gene mutation by editing their DNA

DNA-anlysis

Using a powerful gene-editing technique, scientists have rid human embryos of a mutation that causes an inherited form of heart disease often deadly to healthy young athletes and adults in their prime. The experiment marks the first time that scientists have altered the human genome to ensure a disease-causing mutation would disappear not only from the…
