A Q methodology study on divergent perspectives on CRISPR-Cas9 in the Netherlands
This study shows that Q methodology followed by group discussions enables citizens to contribute meaningfully to discourses about research, and suggests research on CRISPR-Cas9 should prioritise the broadly supported applications of the technology.

While detailed debates are underway about the scientific and ethical implications of genome editing, this chapter argues that greater attention should be paid to the patent policy issues that these
Assignment of responsibility for creating persons using germline genome-editing
Abstract The 2018 announcement regarding safe childbirths via germline genome-editing (GGE) with parental consent shocked the world. This minireview examines the predictable risks, burdens, and
Manipulated Evolution and Artificial Life
Since the 1970s, laboratory methods have been developed in molecular biology that allow for the manipulation of the DNA sequences of genes or the genome of an organism. Expression of proteins in

Follow the money: What the sources of Jiankui He’s funding reveal about what Beijing authorities knew about illegal CRISPR babies, and when they knew it
ABSTRACT In December 2019, a Chinese court sentenced Jiankui He, the scientist who used genome editing to create three babies via in vitro fertilization (IVF), to three years in prison for practicing
Informed Consent for Human Embryo Genome Editing
In the event that human embryo genome editing is considered safe enough for the clinic, researchers will need to consider how to administer consent so that would-be recipients of edited embryos can
International Reporting Mechanism for Unethical Germline Gene Editing Experiments Is Needed.
An international governance mechanism for reporting unethical gene editing experiments should be established to prevent such activities from happening again.
Is Artificial Man Still Far Away: Anthropomimetic Robots Versus Robomimetic Humans
The author argues that the crucial breakthrough towards an “artificial man” has not yet been made, as formidable challenges remain and cannot be overcome easily in the near future.
