(#FreedomFaction: Welcome to the world of #Chimeras & #Manimals. We’re blending the species together and redefining again, what it means to be Human.)


Scientists around the world [pretended to be] shocked in April when a team led by #HuangJunjiu, 34, at #SunYatsenUniversity in #Guangzhou, published the results of an experiment in editing the genes of #humanembryos. The technology, called #CrisprCas9, may be used to eradicate inheritable illnesses. But in theory, it also could be used to change [the #humangenetic code] and to ensure that the changes are passed on to future generations […] #Chinese scientists are generally poorly paid, he said, but may receive a bonus of up to $32,000 per article from the state for publishing in international #scientific journals, providing financial incentives for pushing the boundaries. “Do first, talk later” is the attitude of many, Dr. Rao and two colleagues wrote recently on #iScientist, an online community for #Chinese researchers. A global medical ethics body run by the #WorldHealthOrganization or the #UnitedNations should be set up to regulate scientific experimentation, Dr. Rao said. More unpleasant scientific surprises are looming, several scientists said. “Right now, human gene editing is the main thing,” Mr. Yi said. Geneticists in China “don’t want to be guided by Western people.” The mind-set among Chinese researchers, according to Mr. Yi: “ ‘We’re going to do it, then see what’s wrong, then fix it.
