For the sake of its future, Connecticut should embrace gene-editing science

Curing disease.  Growing healthier, more sustainable crops. Adapting energy and environmental needs while moderating demands on our changing world. These have long been some of the most complex scientific goals facing researchers—many of whom conduct their experiments here in Connecticut. Now, an emerging technology – gene editing – is changing the way scientists conduct their research. It will fundamentally change the way science addresses current and future agricultural, medical and scientific challenges.
