A Russian scientist plans to plant a genetically modified genome that is resistant to AIDS

A Russian scientist plans to plant a genetically modified genome that is resistant to AIDS

In an interview with Nature magazine, Russian scientist Dennis Rybrikov announced plans to conduct experiments to form embryos of children with modified genes.

It was intended to modify the CCR5 gene, previously promoted by the Chinese biologist, Jankwei, to modify it, even to announce the birth of genetically modified children in November 2018. Over 100 scientists criticized the actions of the Chinese researcher.

For his part, Denis Riprikov, indicated his intention to implant transgenic embryos end of 2019 if he obtained a license to do so. The Russian channel "360" quoted the Russian scientist as saying that his experience would be less risky and more acceptable to the community, compared to the experience, which is Janqui.

According to the Russian scientist, he wants to delete a gene that allows AIDS to infiltrate the cells of the human body, and explained that such embryos will be planted in the future for mothers infected with AIDS.

But some scientists have questioned the ability of the world to conduct such an experiment, and expressed moral concerns about the genome modification technology they consider to be out of order.
