A third CRISPR baby may have already been born in China:
s there a third CRISPR baby in China? Last November, biophysicist He Jiankui said he’d edited the genomes of twin girls, inaugurating the age of genetically-modified humans. The research was so controversial that Chinese authorities put a stop to it and He is now incommunicado somewhere in China. But now, a timeline of events reveals that a second CRISPR baby pregnancy created by He is just about 40 weeks along. That means the next CRISPR baby may already be born—or is about to be. The big question now is whether China will disclose the birth and provide scientific data about the child’s health.
