Interesting read, seems credible. Im no scientist or bio-geneticist, so Id be interested if there are missed areas in this. Surprised to learn that GM human children have already been born!! Seems like this would be a much bigger story.

This is a very technical article, and the tone of the article was thoughtful. The piece attempts to explain the implications and scientific achievement that made this groundbreaking (for better or worse) story possible.
