A blockbuster gene-editing tool just got one step closer to overtaking GMOs

In a statement issued last week, the USDA said that it had no plans to regulate crops "that could otherwise have been developed through traditional breeding techniques."

The next gene-edited food you eat probably won't be a GMO (genetically modified organism) — at least not in the conventional sense of the term. Instead, it will probably have been made using Crispr, a new technique that lets scientists precisely tweak the DNA of crops to give it enhanced flavor, a longer shelf-life, or the ability to survive severe drought.

CRISPR Gene Editing May Cause Hundreds of Unintended Mutations in DNA

A new study from Columbia University Medical Center offers a word of warning for those scientists using CRISPR-Cas9. They found that the gene editing technology could lead to unintended mutations, which could remain undetected if they are only checked by algorithms.
