The world's leading human genome editing researchers will soon be attending the Third International Summit on Human Genome Editing at the Francis Crick Institute, London.
A 'Cut + Paste' exhibition begins at the Francis Crick Institute this week, with the Progress Educational Trust attending the launch.
'Genome editing tools offer huge potential to improve human health and the world around us, but like all new technologies, they raise ethical questions and concerns,' said Ruth Garde, curator of Cut + Paste. 'The public does not know much about these techniques at present. Cut + Paste will allow visitors to explore and reflect on the ethics of genome editing via a series of interactive experiences.'
