Summary A major genetic engineering revolution has been underway since 2012. Thanks to a molecular device called CRISPR-Cas9, editing DNA will soon be as easy as pressing a button. Stunning applications are now possible, such as wiping out malaria, HIV and some genetic diseases. But it also becomes possible to order a "programmed" animal, or human embryo. The economic impact of such a discovery is overwhelming and fundamental ethical questions are being raised. CRISPRCas9 opens a whole new field of possibilities which will forge our future. Can we imagine "enhanced" human beings? Can we forge life and evolution according to our needs?
