Scientists want to make pig organs for humans’

According to new research, gene-editing method could
one day make pig organs
suitable for use in people.
Prof George Church and
colleagues used a technique
called Crispr to alter the DNA of

pig DNA.
If successful, it could be an
answer to the shortage of
human donor organs.
Years more research is needed
before genetically modified pigs
could be bred to grow organs
for people.

Crispr is a relatively new scientific
tool that lets scientists snip and
