What are your thoughts on the modification of the human genome? Besides that, what are your thoughts on the genetic modification of any species; Flora, Fauna, and fungi?
Jun 24, 01 / Jun 13, 17 09:25 UTC
I agree to improve the human genome and modify plants or bacteria, but only in order to benefit us and the rest of the living beings
Jun 24, 01 / Jun 13, 17 09:25 UTC
Agreed with the genetic modifications also i support them! i mean, this universe is soooo vast right..? and we only have little time to that..so yeah..why not? as long the Asgardia allowed this...

My position follows James Enriquez. To not embrace genetic and other modifications to assist in adaptation to space habitats would be unethical. He gave an excellent speech called *"What will humans look like in 100 years?"* The link to the video is below.

For those of you that support genetic modification, what changes in the human genome would you see fit to manipulate?

This is a so big field... O.o for now I suggest to modify only probiotics, we can't monitor long term effects of direct modifications. But we can modify intestinal flora for better immunity for example

It's a good point Soikiro that we need to begin at probiotics and work out ways to keep Asgardians and Earthlings healthy and more suitable for life in space.

Let's try to keep the pseudoscience out of Asgardia >The European Food Safety Authority has rejected all petitions by commercial manufacturers for health claims on probiotic products in Europe due to insufficient research and thus inconclusive proof of effectiveness.Occurring over many years, the scientific reviews established that a cause-and-effect relationship ...

It is being researched extensively. It will happen whether we think it is ethical or desirable or not. Our best course is to engage in the hope to limlit the excesses and guide. "Modifications will allow us to explore, live, and get to places we wouldn't even dream of today.' ...

I'm completely agree with qwerty in previous message. Genetic modifications is essential for our space colonization. By genetic modification we can control (in future) our evolution, theoretically we can prepare our bodies for conditions that is completely different from Earthly.

There will be always people who will tell that "something" is unethical in science and we should not proceed this field. That is a huge problem, due to the lack of knowledge among common people. So, let's be better than that. There is nothing unethical to do research, unless it ...

Genetic modifications are something not appropriately considered by general population, and that is an issue, being scientists the main responsible for it (media as well, obviously). Besides GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) for industry, food, etc., there is a growing interest in genetic modifications and genome-editing techniques applicable to humans. And ...

In recent years, the use of gene editing techniques has raised concern among both scientists and the public, with some fearing it could lead to unintended consequences, or even be used to create biological weapons. Now, researchers have discovered a set of proteins that could act as a kill switch ...

qwerty any technologies potentially can be used to create weapons, all depends on people who owns this technologies, and this is the problem. Always will be someone who will use science to cause harm to others. So, all that we can do it's just provide more powerful researches and discover ...

There's a company called biplasiq working on mitochondria that will allow poeple to absorb solar energy to give us energy and increased healing speed without excessively Boosting are matabalism so we can sustain are selves on less calories

I believe the laws in place for it should be that we only allow fully grown adults to be allowed to genetically augment themselves and have it so children and fetuses can be allowed to have genetic diseases taken out that way we don't end up with designer babies
