Given the actual Genome Editing technologies, one interesting question would be "what diseases we'll be able to fight during the next 5 or 10 years". Nonetheless, in the next decade or so, all of these tools / technologies will advance so much that it will be tough to think about where it all started...


Loved the quizzes developed by molecular cloud. It gives me a chance to look over the topics in which I am highly interested in over the past years in more depth. Thanks for working over this smart phenomenon Molecular Cloud!!


Some questions about the future could be cool :p, also, let's make a quiz about synbio hahaahaha


Excellent question Thank you.


Great quiz, thanks c: Is amazing to think how many things we can improve with this new biotechnologies!


Exciting quiz; genome editing has so many applications. I'm curious to see the Future implications of It, especially in the medical field.
