On the gene editing story, in a hopefully reassuring outcome, as far as I can tell the entire genetics community has come out outrages about the Chinese scientist's actions.

I can only hope Liv is correct and this is actually a hoax.

There needs to be lots of discussions before human genome editing is done even in trials let alone for specific medical purposes.

I think statements that came out of the twitter discussion are correct in that genome-wide screening will become a standard practice to help people understand the genetic risks to their health and manage them from year 0 rather than later in the day but the odds of genome editing becoming a standard thing even for genetic disease is much lower, it might start happening for rare diseases where other options don't work but it is unlikely to become common
