According to the Chinese teacher trained at Standfor, babies protect HIV. The news was circulated to criticize and write; describes the dispute.
China's researcher said he would have an in vitro product with a modified genius that gave a real opponent to AIDS virus, a statement that raised a behavioral fine for an action that was considered "dangerous" and " irresponsible ".
Jiankui, a professor at the University of Shenzhen in southern China, sent a video on YouTube announcing her two weeks ago from two couples to whom the DNA was changed to resist her & # 39; AIDS virus. He stated that the HIV father is positive.
The researcher, trained at Stanford in the United States and explained the running of a specialized lane in the genome in Shenzhen, used the Crispr-Cas9 method, known as " genetic scissors ", which allows them to dispose of them and part of the unsupported parts of the genome impedes a computer ban.

The babies, known as "Lula" and "Nana", were born with an in vitro product of modified embryo before being introduced into a maternal uterus. "After the introduction of human sperm into the egg, the Crispr-Cas9 protein ecology was responsible for changing gene to protect the women from HIV disease in the future," he explained Jiankui.
This psychotherapy medical event was not yet independently proven. The Chinese team's findings have not been published in a scientific magazine.
"The production of these results in a YouTube video is a difficult scientific habit," a & # 39; Nicholas Evans, a professor of philosophy at Massachusetts University of Lowell in the United States, works on biological issues.
"This eliminates the control processes that have many scientific advances that rest, such as peer-evaluation," he said, with an AFP questioned.
Whether or not it is mentioned, the case raises "heavy pressures," said Sarah Chan, from the University of Edinburgh, named by the Center for Science Media. "It's likely to make such applications, most likely trying to disagree (…) inconsistent," he said.
His announcement is on the evening of a conference of world genome experts in Hong Kong when the researcher needs to give his findings in detail.
