The field of genome editing goes all the way back to the 1970s when researchers discovered how to clone DNA. Now, scientists can genetically modify DNA to eliminate genetic diseases and even create entirely new species of organisms. Experts discuss how gene editing technology can fit millions of years of evolution into mere months.
