Gene editing, the ability to make highly specific changes in the DNA sequence of a living organism. Gene editing is performed using specialized technologies, including enzymes engineered to target a specific DNA sequence. Key among gene-editing technologies is a molecular tool known as CRISPR-Cas9. Controversial genetic engineering research has started to crowd the events calendar at the National Academy Sciences. Last year the Academy convened a workshop to examine infectious disease gain of function research (Sharples et al.) and this September, , it is scheduled to begin examining human gene editing, in particular the use of CRISPr-Cas technology.

1 Basic Concepts of Human Genetics • The genetic information of an individual is contained in 23 pairs of chromosomes. Every human cell contains the 23 pair of chromosomes. • One pair is called sex chromosomes Male: XY Female: XX • Other 22 pairs of homologous chromosomes are called autosomes.

• The autosome chromosome pairs are called homologous pair. Yet the relevance of principles of human behavior go well beyond these concerns. Research in areas such as decision making, health behavior change, communication science, social and health inequities, and implementation science has much to contribute and stands to elevate the visibility and impact of genetic discoveries.
