May 15, 2018—The technology to edit the genomes of living things is advancing rapidly. How do we decide when not to do the things that we can? Applications in laboratory mice would allow the assembly of complex genotypes that were once unthinkable due to cost, time, and number of animals. Such applications could improve drug testing and mouse models of complex human genetic diseases. Despite these benefits, many have raised concerns about unintended consequences of the release of transgenic organisms.
