The Genetic Engineering Generation

Over a year ago, I read an article about the genetic engineering of human embryos and I immediately knew that the world was in trouble...

It’s not that I’m afraid of scientific progress or the eventual certainty that our species will customize offspring like video game characters. I accept that people will one day be born who are immune to cancer, asthma, and blindness. When that day comes, when the benefits of genetic engineering have been studied, tested, and perfected, the results will be extraordinary: a world where - physically speaking at least - no one will ever be born unlucky.

Creating a world free from the misfortunes of birth defects and genetic diseases will…

 The Genetic Engineering Generation

Those of us alive today are going to live through a complicated transition. Some day in the next decade or two, some of us will be regular people, and some of us will have been born with the benefits of genetic engineering.

Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News

Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News (GEN), the only high-frequency publication dedicated to biotech news, from bench to business, was introduced in 1981 as the first biotechnology trade publication.

Debating genetic engineering, genetic modification, proposition 37, biotechnology, transgenic organisms, synthetic life, patenting life, monsanto, corporate control, evolution, labeling, GMOs, food security, education, democracy and the sacred.

Caribou Biosciences

Our singular focus is on the advancement of new applications for CRISPR-Cas gene editing that will help bring the tremendous promise this technology holds for patients and consumers to reality.

Editas Medicine

Editas Medicine is building the leading genome editing company dedicated to treating patients with genetically defined diseases.


GENET is a European network of non-governmental non-profit organisations engaged in the critical debate of genetic engineering, founded in 1995. GENET's mission is to provide information on genetic engineering to its member organisations and the interested public and to support their activities and campaigns.

Ginkgo Bioworks

Ginkgo Bioworks is the organism company. We design custom microbes for customers across multiple markets. We build our foundries to scale the process of organism engineering using software and hardware automation. Organism engineers at Ginkgo learn from nature to develop new organisms that replace technology with biology.

Large Animal Genetic Engineering Summit

Remarkable developments in genome editing are revolutionizing medicine and agriculture as large animal genomes can, for the first time, be modified with sophistication and efficiency so far only achievable in the mouse.
