Home DIY gene editing

Postby Burgerman » 01 Jun 2018, 02:24

BIO-HACKING at home.

Buy your CRISPR-cas9 human/animal kit.
Or make your own genetically engineered fruit tree.

I am not kidding! Theres a large community, and lots of people doing home DIY gene editing in a bedroom. And many experiments you can practice on. And apparently high school kids are all learning it to match their schoolwork!

Lenny? Can this actually work?

Everything available on the web, even get kits. And mods are swapped between the community.
EG Bodybuilders doubling up on muscle. A guy on utube showing how he doubled up his muscles.

Is this real? Does it work? Confused but interested. Maybe I can fix myself! :fencing

Yes, the technology is simple enough to make it work at home. No, you shouldn't. You would be mucking in totally uncontrolled ways with central biological processes, it most likely will cause massive mayhem, and you will have no way of knowing whether it did any good or any harm or how much harm. Some crowd-sourced science in model organisms may be worthwhile, but in people - that's just Russian roulette.
