When Chinese researchers first edited the genes of a human embryo in a lab dish init sparked global outcry and pleas from scientists not to make a baby using the technology, at least for the present. Now, it appears it may already be happening. The scientist behind the effort, He Jiankui, did not reply to a list of questions about whether the undertaking had produced a live birth.
Guidelines follow uproar over Chinese scientist's claims about edited twins. The rules will restrict research to fields like infertility treatment. He faced immediate criticism on safety and ethics concerns.

The zygote travels to the uterus and attaches to the inner wall of the uterus and grows into a baby. If we are able to redress most intractable ailments through tech breakthroughs, why not? Less than a century ago, antibiotics were not the normal cure.
Osaka man's attempt to take zygote and sperm samples to China raises alarm. OSAKA -- Genetic material for wagyu beef, a Japanese delicacy and key export, was almost smuggled overseas in a recent incident, a close call that has spurred Japan to guard its cattle and their reproductive cells more tightly to keep copycats from breeding them. Upon arrival in China, he was stopped by customs and returned to Japan, where he voluntarily turned himself in at a quarantine station, telling officials he was "asked by an acquaintance" to deliver the materials and "didn't know it was illegal" to do so.

Event coordinators can rent standalone MAP units or units operated by Zygote staff, for hours of printmaking that attracts and engages all kinds of audiences. Zygote MAP units have gone to more than 60 offsite locations, including libraries, community centers, citywide festivals, private parties and more. The MAP units offer an important way of engaging the community with mobile and innovative printmaking experiences.
In a world first, Chinese scientists have reported editing the genomes of human embryos. In the paper, researchers led by Junjiu Huang, a gene-function researcher at Sun Yat-sen University in Guangzhou, tried to head off such concerns by using 'non-viable' embryos, which cannot result in a live birth, that were obtained from local fertility clinics. The researchers say that their results reveal serious obstacles to using the method in medical applications. Some say that gene editing in embryos could have a bright future because it could eradicate devastating genetic diseases before a baby is born.
