How do scientists prove that twin babies had their genes edited?
Questions are swirling after the announcement that the first gene-edited babies were born earlier this month — including what exactly researchers did and whether it worked. The announcement came via a YouTube video posted by Jiankui He, a Chinese scientist. He released the video after MIT Technology Review reported on the existence of clinical trial documents indicating that researchers were recruiting potential parents for a gene-editing study of embryos that would then be implanted via in vitro fertilization.
