Is it actually all good? i mean messing around with DNA?
I mean i dont want my great great grandchildren in years to come to have an extra arm or leg or an antler or something because i decided to go and FA
with my DNA. We`ll all turn into inbred homosapiensexuals. Thats another thing that i want to know right there in itself. Now i aint no rocket
scientist but surely the gene pool is or should be somewhat dry? Anyone? What seperates us are we all a messed up gene pool? Surely inbred somewhere?
Any time people see "DNA" they immediately jump to Resident Evil. For cryin' out loud, all kinds of DNA technologies out there are enormously
beneficial and don't carry any kinds of risks of "wtf sp1d3rm4n mutashuns1!!1!"
Now this doesn't mean I think we should start pulling ye olde designer babies from the proverbial aether, but I think you shouldn't go spouting
alarmism for no good reason.
A small (probably nothing) problem might be that AFAIK mtDNA and nDNA have evolved in parallel (gene for gene). What happens when nDNA and mtDNA meet
for the first time in 10s of thousands of years (totally possible depending on donors)? They might not cooperate properly..
What strikes me as odd is that this is called a breakthrough. Why? Because it's not a breakthrough. We've been able to do this for half a century
Thanks for that, anymore info on this interesting stuff
So would that mean they could trace a bloodline or possibly seperate or determine where they crossed? Possibly find those of the origional
Im not making sense yet but hopefully soon will.
