Genetic Modification in Medicine

One of the most promising uses for genetic modification being eyed in the future is on the field of medicine. There are a number of advances already being done in the field of genetic modification that may be able to allow researchers to someday be able to develop a wide range of medicines that will be able to treat a variety of diseases that current medicines may not be able to. There are many ways that genetic modification can be used in the development of new medicines in the future. One of t…
