Regulating RNA Research and CRISPR Gene Drives to Combat Biosecurity Threats

Faunce, Thomas; Ray, Andrew; Gardiner, Christie; Preiss, Thomas; Burgio, Gaetan

Description

Recent technological breakthroughs in ribonucleic acid (RNA) research and the creation of synthetic gene drives using CRISPR/Cas9 have increased attention on the ethical and legal regulation of this field. RNA is now perceived as not merely a passive carrier of DNA information but especially through its propensity to mutate as a computation engine of cell biology, developmental biology and evolution. Synthetic Gene drives have been hailed as a potential strategy to reduce...[Show more]
