Advancements in this field are moving fast but ethical considerations loom large.

Dr He and his family are in a university apartment at Southern University of Science and Technology in Shenzhen, surrounded by guards while his work is investigated. It’s not known if they are armed.

Netflix is currently airing a show called Unnatural Selection. There’s a segment where a guy is keeping several large dogs in cages and using them for his kitchen based genetic experiments. I found it highly disturbing.
