One-hit wonder? Revolutionary CRISPR machine can edit hundreds of genes at once
The revolutionary CRISPR gene editing machine has undergone an incredible upgrade to edit “dozens or even hundreds of genes” at once, allowing scientists to reprogram entire gene networks in one fell swoop.

Previously, in the best case scenario, the CRISPR-Cas technique could only modify a handful of genes simultaneously and usually it could only manage one at a time. However, new research opens up a world of possibilities for scientists to change cells on a much larger scale.

“Our method enables us, for the first time, to systematically modify entire gene networks in a single step,” says the study’s author Randall Platt, from ETH Zurich in Switzerland. “Thanks to this new tool, we and other scientists can now achieve what we could only dream of doing in the past.”

That's the scary part of this tech. Where wouldn't they draw the line?

Could be good news to cure diseases that some people have.

There are hundreds of millions of human-looking organisms walking the world at this point in time.

They tend to have extremely large foreheads and/or rather disturbing hair lines. You'll notice when you see it.

These are without spirit; purely biological robots - if you will. And they have been in production since the early 60s.

This supposed breakthrough in gene editing technology surely is something kept secret for years to decades.

The disease being cured will always be a carrot on a stick, just like everything else. Meanwhile, it is too valuable to use as a demonization for sin to even allow to treat the symptoms. "We control whether you are sick or healthy" is the deal, and while suffering illness may make a person weak, they'd have to be pretty venal to put everyone on earth under that kind of sick-minded program, a sick-mindedness for which there is no cure.
