In the following report we will describe the technological and ethical aspects of the genetic engineering tool known as the CRISPR/Cas9 technology. This new and groundbreaking method comes with a lot of concerns which we will address and discuss. We will also be looking at the current EU legislation and discuss whether they are properly justified. We then finally wish to clarify the ethical questions surrounding the technology and wish to answer the question: “Is the use of the CRISPR/Cas9 technology in embryo be ethical?”.
