Ethics of genome editing
Geographic data Editing organism may affect the geological features of the land. Eg. changing plants to live in harsh environment will change the natural system of the area
Historical evidence Humans have been genetically modifying organisms for thousands of years to get more desired crops and livestock
Political data What regulations need to be put in place? How will these regulations differ from place to place and what will be labeled as GMO?
Economic data With the new technique of genetic editing the agricultural industry will have a period of fluctuations in prices due to the easy applications of CRISPR Cas9. Prices may rise due to better produce but drop due to superstitions.
Ethical consideration What are the boundaries of genome editing? – designer babies, costume made pets/livestock, diseases/mutations
Timelines – how long have we been genetically modifying food
Graphs – progress/time for method to work
Areas in the world using this method now
Map of species distribution
Graph cost of different methods
“Targeted mutagenesis in wheat microspores using CRISPR/Cas 9”
‘It is hard apply this method to crop species with a long life cycle because the wanted genotypes normally require many generations before it can achieve the desired result.’
“Single-celled microspores are haploid cells that can develop into double haploid plants” which is a faster method that is currently the most popular method to produce the desired traits within a single generation.
‘ the study shows that it is better to combined microspores technology with the CRISPR based gene editing technology.’
Ethics of genome editing in the agricultural industry
Genome editing is the miracle of the twenty first century, it is a precise method that delves down right to the main source, genes, that are behind what makes up the organism’s features.
