|Meet with one of those babies from|
the CRSPR family...
From the "Genomics-it's-happening-right-under-our-feet" Department:
CRSPR (pronounce "crisper") means clustered regular short palindromatic repeats. And this is a Bacteria-Side Story...
Do people realize how quickly genetic engineering is approaching? W/ CRSPR we are really nearing the point where this’ll be going in vivo.

@Billare @joe_pickrell Yes, the designer babies are coming! They will be a little mosaic at first w the crspr tech as I understand it.==> http://www.broadinstitute.org/mpg/crispr_design/faq.php
