1 - Introduction


In this Introduction (Chapter 1), we discuss the science of human genome modification in general, how it relates to human reproduction, and the specific advances that CRISPR/Cas 9 represents and the family of tools it has generated to date. We then explain the methodology we followed preparing this book, including how countries were selected and what we chose to focus on and why.
