In Sweden began experiments to edit the genome of human embryos

Research in this area will allow in the future to get rid of many genetic diseases. Moreover, scientists predict that a person's appearance can also be edited. This tells the publication the Inquisitr.

A group of scientists from the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm was the first who successfully conducted the editing of the genome of a healthy human embryos. DNA introduced a system of editing genes. In fact, the editing of the genome occurred in the first cells of the embryo.

Note, the experimental embryos were doomed to destruction because of biological features. Use them for artificial insemination was impossible.

While specific data and detailed description of the method of editing DNA scientists provide. It is possible that in the future parents will be able to create their children with a special genetic designer. However, the main purpose of scientists – treatment of infertility and serious hereditary diseases.
