First US Nonhuman Primate Gene Editing Study Successful

In a study led by Michigan State University, scientists have shown that gene editing using CRISPR/Cas9 technology can be quite effective in rhesus monkey embryos ­– the first time this has been demonstrated in the U.S.

The research is in Human Molecular Genetics. (full access paywall)

In the next 10 or so years, your blood will probably be streaming with tiny nanorobots there to help keep you from getting sick or even transmit your thoughts to a wireless cloud. The future is closer than you may think.
Google’s director of engineering, Ray Kurzweil, is an avid predictor of future events and claims to have a fairly high accuracy rate. He is one of the biggest proponents of the notion that nanobots will be streaming through our blood in the near future. The idea surrounding this prediction isn’t that far off from modern technology.

I'm most happy when I graze on seagrass beds, which are also called the 'lungs of the sea.' Unfortunately, seagrass is sensitive to pollution so now I have less and less seagrass to eat. It's #marinemadness!

3D #Bioprinters are now making it possible for us to print living cell tissue. This can be laid down and printed in the exact detail with capillaries and other #tissue components all intact. This innovation is now making it possible to conclude preclinical trials on human tissue faster and more efficaciously. This has led to a spurt in demand for 3 D cell tissue. According to BCC Research the demand for this tissue is estimated to reach $2.2 billion by 2019.
