From the Ted Talk by Ellen Jorgensen: What you need to know about CRISPR

Unscramble the Blue Letters

Now the other thing is, we don't really know that much about how to make a particular thing happen by changing particular spots in the genome. We're a long way away from figuring out how to give a pig wings, for example. Or even an exrta leg — I'd settle for an extra leg. That would be kind of cool, right? But what is happening is that CRISPR is being used by thousands and tudhnasos of scientists to do really, really important work, like minkag better models of diseases in animals, for example, or for taking pathways that puordce valuable chemicals and getting them into iurdtiasnl podtorcuin in fermentation vats, or even doing really basic research on what genes do.
