In Modern Prometheus Science writer Jim Kozubek attempts to understand the impact, both positive and negative, CRISPR gene editing technology could have on the world. Kozubek provides the reader an introduction to CRISPR gene editing and how it is being applied, while also reporting on the lack of global governance. This dichotomy is compared to the Greek Titan Prometheus who brought the arts into the world but could not prevent the opening of Pandora’s box.
