Biohacker Dog Breeders To Need FDA Approval.

In DNA, Genetics by Brainy Days Ahead

Biohackers hope to use inexpensive new gene-editing techniques to modify the genes of dogs and other animals to prevent the transfer of inherited diseases that plague certain species. In a recent example dog breeders experimented with the biohacking of Dalmatians by repairing a single DNA letter in their genomes that might prevent an inherited disease called hyper uricemia. Now, according to newly proposed FDA regulations, such “creations” will need FDA approval before entering the marketplace.
