This year, several leading researchers have sounded warnings about the risks of using the CRISPR gene-editing technique to modify human1 and other species' genomes in ways that could have “unpredictable effects on future generations”2 and “profound implications for our relationship to nature” (see go.nature.com/jq5sik).
