In the future, we won’t have sex to procreate
Today, Stanford University professor Hank Greely’s assertion that Americans will stop having sex to procreate sounds absurd. But in a couple of decades, he predicts, that will be the accepted reality.

In ‘Enormous Success,’ Scientists Tie 52 Genes to Human Intelligence
Genetics figured out that it makes some people smarter than others. The DNA of intelligent people differs from others in fewer mutations! So there is no "intelligence gene", but heredity takes place. That's where the genetic scissors come in handy!

A Lack of 'Editing' in The Brain Could Be What's Driving The Most Aggressive Tumours
Brain cancer is often a devastating diagnosis, and scientists have been hunting for mechanisms that could explain the sources of brain tumours, with hopes to also find something that could prevent them.

CRISPR tech leads to new screening tool for Parkinson's disease
A team of researchers is using breakthrough gene-editing technology to develop a new screening tool for Parkinson's disease, a debilitating degenerative disorder of the nervous system. The technology allows scientists in the lab to 'light up' and then monitor a brain protein called alpha-synuclein that has been associated with Parkinson's.
