hey everybody !

i came across this in my facebook feed: http://www.iflscience.com/brain/brai...cd-identified/

i think it might have implications for people living with tourette syndrome also, as ocd is so often an umbrella disorder of ts.

i listened to a report on national public radio about the human genome and CRISPR, which is a new tool that might make it possible to rewrite a specific sequence or letter of the human genome and fix a person's disease process or prevent people from getting disease. there is, of course, a lot of ethical discussion that needs to happen before we begin designing humans without disease, http://www.geneticsandsociety.org/article.php?id=8711
