CRISPR stands for Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats

genetic engineering and it forms the basis for CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing technology. CRISPR gene editing is a biomedical science breakthrough that allows genetic modifications to be made to humans and even create "CRISPR babies" by allowing DNA to altered by cas9 technology. Is CRISPR therapeutics the answer to humanity's health problems? Do we need to set bioethics limits? This lesson plan gives accompanies a Science News Explainer Video.

Topics discussed include designer babies, the end of diseases, and genetically modified humans that never age. The video makes of light that many of how these things were once only science fiction are suddenly becoming reality!
