Chinese scientists have used gene editing to make the brains of monkeys more human-like by editing the human version of a gene known as ‘MCPH1’ into the macaques. The gene made the monkeys’ brain develop along a more human-like timeline. The gene-hacked monkeys showed better reaction times and improved short-term memories. Few scientists have examined or criticized the danger of creating transgenic creatures, making it likely to recur.
Making monkeys more smart and human-like, scientists have used gene-editing to insert human brain gene in a monkey.
For the first time, a team of Chinese scientists made use of
gene-editing techniques to make monkey brains more human-like. By the
end, the monkeys, rhesus macaques, got smarter and had superior memories
as compared to the unaltered monkeys.

A new study shows that CRISPR gene editing can cause hundreds of unintended gene mutations. DNA tinkering is part of a long-standing program, originally funded by the Rockefellers, to transform the human race into two distinct species: one to serve and the other to command.
What about unintended consequences? The CRISPR technique is simple, raising the fear that the technology will be used by ignorant and unethical people. Scientists worry that once a species is modified, it is changed forever.
