23andMe denies "designer babies" plan

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

It sounds like something out of a sci-fi movie: consumer genetic testing specialist has been caught up in a row over a patent that covers a product that some say could allow the creation of “designer babies.” The company has denied that it intends to apply the product for this use, but this has not stopped commentators weighing in on whether this would be ethical or even scientifically plausible.
