Researchers at the Francis Crick Institute in London have applied for permission to modify a human embryo.  The researchers want to use CRISPR/Cas9 technology to study how a fertilized egg turns into a blastocyst, as well as uterus implantation.  All embryos will come from those left after in vitro fertilization attempts and will be destroyed 7 days after fertilization.
