Legal Regulation Of Genetically Engineered Activities


The idea that science has no boundaries comes from recent discoveries in the field of genetics. This is the science that deals with the study of genes, genetic variation and heredity in organisms. Over the past 25 years, the most revolutionary in the field has been the study of double helix DNA genes and genomes; this research has led to new discoveries, including the ability of humans to alter genetic sequences, the discovery of gene modification mechanisms such as the CRISPR-Cas (cluster regular short palindromic repeats) and Cas (CRISPR-related) system. Improvements in genetic engineering have opened up access to new opportunities to save lives and create new treatment options for diseases that cannot be cured by known classical methods. However, despite the current possession of such knowledge, two very important questions arise: First, can we make changes to a system that is not fully understood? Second, who controls the limits of genetic science? Unfortunately, there are no answers to fully answer these questions, because legal systems have not kept pace with the genetic engineering revolution and lawyers and scientists often do not understand the rules. In such a situation, the only true answer would be for the public authorities to intervene with adequate legal regulations and to apply the concept of bioethics to genetic engineering.
