A Chinese researcher He Jiankui claims that he helped make the world's first genetically modified babies - twin girls whose DNA he says he altered with a powerful new tool that lets scientists edit the genetic code. "I feel a strong responsibility that it's not just to make a first, but also make it an example. How to perform things like this, consider morality of the society and consider its impact to the public," said scientist He Jiankui of Southern University of Science and Technology of China. The researcher, He Jiankui, of Shenzhen, said he altered embryos for seven couples during fertility treatments, with one pregnancy so far.
