Gene therapy, an alteration of genes within the body to fight or prevent disease, has sparked a revolution in cancer treatment. Cancer is the 2nd leading cause of death in the United States, and the two main ways we treat it - radiation and chemotherapy - have severe side effects. In this episode of Fw:Thinking, Jonathan Strickland walks us through the process of human gene therapy, reveals it's exciting potential, and questions the ethics of genetic modification and altering DNA. We have a question for you! If you were a gene hacker, what crazy genetic mutation would you give yourself?

Just tweak a chromosome and you'll be all better. Gene therapy. Now I'm not talking about support groups for people who can't fit into the same pants they wore in high school. I'm talking about the alteration of genes within the body to treat disease. Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States, and the two main ways we treat it are with radiation and chemotherapy. Both of which have severe side effects. Chemotherapy in particular can be devastating to healthy cells. So gene therapy has the promise of perhaps complimenting or maybe even replacing these other therapies. Currently there are a few different ways to use gene therapy to battle cancer. One way is just to remove the mutated genetic material and replace it with healthy material. Kind of like replacing a flat tire. Another way is to insert special genes into white blood cells. Now this gives those white blood cells the chance to detect and battle tumors. It's like giving a cancer cop a strong pot of coffee and a detailed sketch of what the bad cells look like. But the third, and this is my own personal favorite, is that cells happen to have a little self-destruct button inside them. Now this button gets pressed if there's too much mutation within that cell. But in cancer cells the button is deactivated. So with gene therapy you go in and reactivate that button. Press the button, no more cancer cell. But this raises a question. How do we actually get that genetic material into cells in the first place? Well, do you like spy movies? Because that's what we're talking about here - double agents! In this case, the double agent is a virus. Now normally a virus might be out there to kill you. But what scientists are doing is they're scooping the DNA out of viruses and putting a treatment gene into it, and then putting that into a patient's body. So, like a double agent, the virus works for our team now. In our spy movie, the viruses smuggle in the good genes, so when the cell replicates the good gene is copied instead of the mutated one. Take for example a cancer cell. Once inside the spy virus can deliver the gene that will halt its rampant replication. One such gene is called oligonucleotide. A single stranded piece of DNA that inserts itself directly in the slots of the mutated cell's double helix DNA, essentially jamming up the cell's replicating gears. The mutated segment of DNA can not be transcribed or copied once you've jammed up those gears. And in fact, scientists may one day be able to reverse this process, turning cancer cells back into healthy cells through cellular espionage. So far gene therapy has been used to treat very simple diseases and conditions where a gene is essentially flipped on or off and that effects everything else. Think of it like one of those strands of lights where one light is wrong and therefore the whole thing won't work. You know, kind of like these that I had back in college. Really you just have to find the one bulb that's wrong and fix it and it all comes on again! But some conditions are a little more complicated, and they actually involve lots of different combinations of genes that maybe switched on or off and so we have to determine what that combination is in order to use gene therapy to solve it. We're talking about over 20,000 proteins. This is a big problem. But as genetic information becomes easier for us to obtain, this raises some new questions. For example, should parents be able to determine what their child's eye color should be? Or height? Or sexual orientation? And if we're able to use gene therapy to cure or combat diseases and conditions, does that drastically alter our lifespan and in turn does that drastically alter world population?

Viruses are conventionally thought of as the bad guys: antagonists that can cause destruction in our bodies, sicknesses, birth defects, and even kill us. Adam suggests that they may also be beneficial, and possibly required for human survival. Adam is interested in the idea of using viruses as beneficial tools to help treat human genetic diseases such as cancer. He worked three academic years characterizing oncolytic (cancer-killing) poxviruses in the Division of Biology at Kansas State University. He completed a 2015 summer internship in the Department of Entomology at Kansas State University, which resulted in his co-authorship of a scientific manuscript published in the Journal of Experimental Biology. He studied measles virus replication as a 2016 Summer Undergraduate Research Fellow in the Virology and Gene Therapy Track at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. He is a 2016 Barry Goldwater Scholar, which is the United States’ premier honor for college students in mathematics, natural science, and engineering fields. His additional interest in the intersection between science and public policy led to his nomination to represent Kansas State University in the 2017 Harry Truman Scholarship competition. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

Go to reason.com for a point of view you won't get from legacy media and old left-right opinion magazines. ----- "A biohacker for me is somebody who is doing something clever or interesting in biology," says Josiah Zayner, a molecular biophysicist who runs The ODIN, a company that sells do-it-yourself genetic engineering kits. "They're usually these people that have been fucked by the system who are trying to unfuck themselves." Zayner is one of the leading figures in the biohacking movement and is the main organizer of the BioHack the Planet Conference, a yearly gathering of citizen scientists. This year, over 100 members of the biohacking community met in Oakland, California to discuss a wide array of issues from at-home genetic engineering to questions on bioethics. Biohackers have often been compared to computer hackers of the 1980s, but instead of breaking into and manipulating information technology systems, they're focused on hacking living organisms with the hopes of curing illnesses and in some cases obtaining superhuman powers. Their shared mission is to put this technology into the hands of as many people as possible. "People should be able to use all the technologies that science develops," says Zayner. "It shouldn't just be patented and given to companies or exclusively given to certain people." These do-it-yourself biologists say the democratization of science has given them the freedom to do work on projects that are often ignored by larger institutions. They're using gene editing technologies like CRISPR to create personalized treatments for those suffering from rare diseases or cancer, reverse engineering pharmaceuticals like Epi-Pens so people can make their own medicine at home, and even creating glow in the dark beer. "I think this is the most exciting time thus far in the history of the world to be alive with respect to what we can and will do with life forms," says Hank Greely, the director of the Center for Law and the Biosciences at Stanford University. But breakthroughs in the world of biohacking are drawing more scrutiny from federal regulators. Earlier this year, the Food and Drug Administration began placing restrictions on non-human genetic modifications and declared that genetically edited animals must be classified as drugs. This gives the agency broad authority over a number of do-it-yourself genetics tests and requires experiments involving animals to go through the same vetting process as a new drug. "I guess they couldn't call them cosmetics and they couldn't call them foods, so they're like dogs are drugs," states David Ishee, a Mississippi canine breeder who is working on editing out genetic diseases in dogs. "Everybody's worried about what someone could do with this technology and nobody seems to care about the damage that not doing it will cause because these animals are dying." Increasing regulation could undermine biohacking breakthroughs for humans as well. "I'm a huge fan of deregulation because I believe in the inherent goodness of capitalism," says Zayner. "Stuff doesn't progress unless people do useful things with it." Produced by Alexis Garcia and Justin Monticello. Camera by Garcia, Monticello, and Zach Weissmueller.

November 1, 2018 (Persian calendar 1397/8/10) Iran National Institute of Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology (NIGEB پژوهشگاه ملي مهندسي ژنتيك و زيست فناوري ايران) official website http://www.nigeb.ac.ir Research and Education at National Institute of Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology (NIGEB) The National Institute for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (NIGEB) was established in 1989 under the supervision of the Ministry of Science, Research and Technology. Since then, NIGEB has been given a mandate to undertake original, state-of-the-art research activities. It was established with dual purposes of promoting research in avant-garde areas of biological sciences and biotechnology as well as providing advanced training and educational programs for scientists and students from other universities and academic institutions. The activities of NIGEB are being conducted by three sub-institutes heading nine departments. Institute of Agricultural Biotechnology (IAB) runs the departments of Plant Bioproducts, Plant Molecular Biotechnology, and Animal Biotechnology, the Institute of Industrial and Environmental Biotechnology (IIEB) manages the departments of Bioprocess Engineering, Systems Biotechnology as well as Energy and Environmental Biotechnology. And the Institute of Medical Biotechnology (IMB) conducts the departments of Medical Genetics, Stem Cell, and Molecular Medicine. Each institute or department is dedicated to a highly innovative and pioneering investigation in the different fields of biotechnology. NIGEB is located in Tehran in a unique complex of buildings designed and equipped for studies on various biotechnology fields. The town of Chitgar چيتگر, about 17 km northwest of Tehran, houses the institute’s new main campus with numerous laboratories and facilities as well as a modern pilot plant for exploring the production of new Biotherapeutics. Researchers of universities and research centers from inside the country and around the globe are cooperating with NIGEB through shared research projects and applied educational courses. The time preceding the foundation of this institute coincides with the impetuous growth of the biotechnology and extensive spreading of the concepts and methods of genetic engineering in Iran. At the turning point in terms of globalization, biotechnology acts as a phase of evolution. Accordingly, research at NIGEB is linked directly to the science development. However, a balance between technical advancement and harmony with humanity and environment is of utmost importance. In other words, the coupling of scientific technology with ethics and morality is necessary; thus, we at NIGEB are sincere in our acknowledgement toward it. Furthermore, education and research generally have been carried out individually by our universities so far, but we must acknowledge that presently, we live in an interactive world society. Looking squarely at current needs and realities, NIGEB is determined to contribute to the well-being of the country community by working to transmit the intellectual wisdom of human society, helping to create a safe global environment, and contributing knowledge and expertise that will be of use to future generations. Research in advanced areas of science and technology must be built on a foundation of unique ideas, and it is only when such ideas lead to innovations and discoveries of exemplary ingenuity that research can be said to yield truly fruitful results. The purpose of this home page is publicizing NIGEB research and educational goals. We hope that it will deepen people understanding of these aims and open up new possibilities for future academic collaborations. NIGEB has now the potential to become an internationally recognized academic center with a high reputation. The faculty, staff and students of NIGEB are making continuous efforts for developing, striving for renovation and perfection and although still faced with numerous problems, never ceases in its search. Objectives of NIGEB § Do mission-oriented scientific research in related fields of genetic engineering and biotechnology § Improve researches and laying proper foundation for promotion of research activities § Establish appropriate approaches for converting the research results into technology and upgrading the scale of productions to semi-industrial level § Marketing and commercialization of produced technologies § Provide the country required packages of technical knowledge in biotechnology areas § Collaboration for training researchers in various areas of biotechnology with regard to the priorities setting in the country’s socio-economic program Iran Anti Cancer enzyme L-asparaginase II project, National Institute of Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology پروژه آنزيم ضد سرطان پژوهشگاه مهندسي ژنتيك و زيست فناوري ايران

Intel employee Bryce Olson was diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer. When the standard of care didn’t work, Bryce turned to genomic sequencing which allowed his doctors to identify specific genetic drivers of his disease and identify specific treatments and clinical trials that were a fit for his specific cancer. This precision medicine approach helped send his cancer into remission for several years. Now that his cancer has returned, Bryce is working with the Broad Institute and other leaders in the field of advanced cancer research to use artificial intelligence powered by Intel technology to discover new, innovative solutions that can help him and millions of others like him around the world.

Fight cancer, but how? Chemotherapy kills cancer cells but also healthy cells. The use of our immune cells (T-cells) could allow a more targeted attack of cancer cells but are limited. Genetic engineering makes it possible to transform our T-cells into an army of super-killer cells (CAR-T) which reinjected can destroy a tumor. Clinical trials have shown that, but this is just the beginning of a new era where reprogrammed cells can become super sophisticated drugs. A medical revolution begins! André Choulika, Ph.D., is one of the founders of Cellectis and served as Chief Executive Officer since the company's inception in 1999. He is Chairman of the Board of Directors since 2011 and President of Calyxt since August 2010. From 1997 to 1999, Dr. Choulika worked as a post-doctoral fellow in the Division of Molecular Medicine at Boston Children’s Hospital, where he was one of the inventors of nuclease-based genome editing technologies and a pioneer in the analysis and use of meganucleases to modify complex genomes. After receiving his Ph.D. in molecular virology from the University of Paris VI (Pierre et Marie Curie), he completed a research fellowship in the Harvard Medical School Department of Genetics.

A Chinese group has become the first to inject a person with cells that contain genes edited using the revolutionary CRISPR–Cas9 technique. It could trigger a biomedical race between China and the US. On 28 October, a team in China delivered the modified cells into a patient with aggressive lung cancer as part of a clinical trial at the West China Hospital. Earlier clinical trials using cells edited with a different technique have excited clinicians. The introduction of CRISPR, which is simpler and more efficient than other techniques, will probably accelerate the race to get gene-edited cells into the clinic across the world.

Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic (CRISPR) is a family of DNA sequences in bacteria. The recognition of these sequences form the basis of genome editing technology, this allows scientists to make permanent modification to genes within organisms. This is one of the most promising strategies for genetic engineering and gene therapy.

Humanity towards immortality, The gene-editing technology on humans Chinese scientists have become the first in the world to inject an adult human with cells that have been genetically edited using the revolutionary CRISPR/Cas9 technique. The CRISPR-edited cells were injected on October 28 by a team from the Sichuan University in Chengdu, as part of a clinical trial against aggressive lung cancer - and experts think it could trigger a biomedical race between the US and China. If you haven't heard of CRISPR as yet, Here are some insights Genome editing, or genome editing with engineered nucleases (GEEN) is a type of genetic engineering in which DNA is inserted, deleted or replaced in the genome of a living organism using engineered nucleases, or "molecular scissors." These nucleases create site-specific double-strand breaks (DSBs) at desired locations in the genome. The induced double-strand breaks are repaired through nonhomologous end-joining (NHEJ) or homologous recombination (HR), resulting in targeted mutations, There are currently four families of engineered nucleases being used: meganucleases, zinc finger nucleases (ZFNs), transcription activator-like effector-based nucleases (TALEN), and the CRISPR-Cas system, The CRISPR-Cas system was selected by Science as 2015 Breakthrough of the Year. The new gene-editing technique is poised to revolutionize the way we treat disease, by offering scientists a quick and easy way to cut and paste genes from our DNA. The CRISPR-Cas9 system consists of two key molecules that introduce a change (mutation) into the DNA. These are , an enzyme called Cas9. This acts as a pair of ‘molecular scissors’ that can cut the two strands of DNA at a specific location in the genome so that bits of DNA can then be added or removed and a piece of RNA called guide RNA (gRNA). This consists of a small piece of pre-designed RNA sequence (about 20 bases long) located within a longer RNA scaffold. The scaffold part binds to DNA and the pre-designed sequence ‘guides’ Cas9 to the right part of the genome. This makes sure that the Cas9 enzyme cuts at the right point in the genome. The guide RNA is designed to find and bind to a specific sequence in the DNA. The guide RNA has RNA bases that are complementary to those of the target DNA sequence in the genome. This means that, at least in theory, the guide RNA will only bind to the target sequence and no other regions of the genome. The Cas9 follows the guide RNA to the same location in the DNA sequence and makes a cut across both strands of the DNA. Researchers just need to program it, and it can cut out certain genes - or add new ones - far more cheaply and quickly than any previous genetic tools. Since the potential of the system was discovered back in 2012, it's already been tested widely in animals, and in January this year, it was used to successfully treat its first disease in mice, Duchenne muscular dystrophy. There have also been CRISPR experiments done in non-viable human embryos, which were never brought to term. But this is the first time that cells edited by CRISPR have ever been injected into an adult human. The trial was carried out at the West China Hospital, and involved a patient with aggressive lung cancer. The researchers extracted the patient's immune cells from a blood sample and then used CRISPR editing to disable a gene in them. The gene that was turned off codes for a protein called PD-1, which usually slows down a cell's immune response, allowing cancer to grow out of control. These PD-1-free immune cells were then cultured in the lab and injected back into the patient. The aim is that they'll now proliferate in the patient's body and attack and destroy cancerous cells. It's still early days, but lead researcher Lu You told David Cyranoski at Nature that the initial treatment went well, and the patient is now ready for a second injection. Across the duration of the trial, which received ethics approval in July, the team aims to treat a total of 10 people, with between two and four injections of genetically edited immune cells each. And they're not the only ones planning to use CRISPR on humans - the US has a similar trial against various cancers in the works, which is scheduled to start in early 2017, and has been funded by Napster billionaire Sean Parker. And China has another three clinical trials planned for March 2017 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genome_editing http://www.yourgenome.org/facts/what-is-crispr-cas9

For more than half a decade I've suffered from lactose intolerance. If I consumed even the smallest amounts of lactose I'd be violently ill within the hour. So as I was choosing my university I vowed that one day I'd fix it. Recently my friend Gabriel Licina, renowned biohacker and genetic engineer, gave me access to the tools and materials I needed to make a therapy that could potentially fix the issue. The therapy uses a virus called an AAV to deliver DNA that codes for the enzyme that breaks down lactose. When packaged into a pill and ingested, the virus should induce my intestine to produce lactase, effectively restoring lactose tolerance. This project was based on research done by other scientists and I've included links to all the papers below. I've also included links to all of the places I got the viral DNA kits from. The other reagents and media were all purchased from the thermofisher catalogue. I'm also working on a writeup of this procedure and will hopefully publish a paper on the results once I've collected more data. I know that so far my sample size is still only N=1 but my life has changed from this project and I wanted to share my progress. I'm not going to make any claims about the project other than my life seems to have improved. This is for educational purposes only. Do not attempt anything you see, unless you are an experienced biologist. __________________________________________________________________ Resources: Original paper: http://sci-hub.tw/10.1038/2625 pAAVLacz Plasmid: https://www.cellbiolabs.com/paav-lacz-control-plasmid AAV kit: https://www.cellbiolabs.com/aav-2-cmv-expression-system __________________________________________________________________ Interested in some sweet science themed designs for your wardrobe or wall?

Many diseases have a genetic basis, which means that the disease is caused by mutated genes which provide incorrect instructions that cause the cell to produce abnormal protein, or disable production of the protein completely. In gene therapy, a functional copy of the gene is delivered into a patient’s own cells. Normal protein that is produced from a functional gene corrects the underlying cause of the disease, and may provide restorative disease-modifying effects. Gene therapy uses engineered viruses to deliver genes into cells, such as adeno-associated virus (AAV) vectors, which are especially well suited for treating retinal diseases. Genetic defects in the eye can cause vision loss or blindness, and gene therapy can provide a long-term therapeutic benefit. This video explains how gene therapy, delivered by AAV vectors, works.

While watching the Nightly news on 8/10/11 I saw them announce that they have Genetically Engineered a new cancer cure, after watching the broadcast I felt as if i had seen that news broadcast before....and I had.....it was in the movie 'I AM LEGEND' . Mankind has become TOTALLY corrupt and they (whoever you want to call them: illuminati masons globalist Annunaki greys reptilians government etc.) plan on mutating/corrupting man kind into their OWN image!!!

Lipton, PhD is an internationally recognized leader in bridging science and spirit. Stem cell biologist, bestselling author of The Biology of Belief and recipient of the 2009 Goi Peace Award, he has been a guest speaker on hundreds of TV and radio shows, as well as keynote presenter for national and international conferences. Dr. Lipton began his scientific career as a cell biologist. He received his Ph.D. Degree from the University of Virginia at Charlottesville before joining the Department of Anatomy at the University of Wisconsin’s School of Medicine in 1973. Dr. Lipton’s research on muscular dystrophy, studies employing cloned human stem cells, focused upon the molecular mechanisms controlling cell behavior. An experimental tissue transplantation technique developed by Dr. Lipton and colleague Dr. Ed Schultz and published in the journal Science was subsequently employed as a novel form of human genetic engineering. In 1982, Dr. Lipton began examining the principles of quantum physics and how they might be integrated into his understanding of the cell’s information processing systems. He produced breakthrough studies on the cell membrane, which revealed that this outer layer of the cell was an organic homologue of a computer chip, the cell’s equivalent of a brain. His research at Stanford University’s School of Medicine, between 1987 and 1992, revealed that the environment, operating though the membrane, controlled the behavior and physiology of the cell, turning genes on and off. His discoveries, which ran counter to the established scientific view that life is controlled by the genes, presaged one of today’s most important fields of study, the science of epigenetics. Two major scientific publications derived from these studies defined the molecular pathways connecting the mind and body. Many subsequent papers by other researchers have since validated his concepts and ideas. Dr. Lipton’s novel scientific approach transformed his personal life as well. His deepened understanding of cell biology highlighted the mechanisms by which the mind controls bodily functions, and implied the existence of an immortal spirit. He applied this science to his personal biology, and discovered that his physical well-being improved, and the quality and character of his daily life was greatly enhanced. Dr. Lipton has taken his award-winning medical school lectures to the public and is currently a sought after keynote speaker and workshop presenter. He lectures to conventional and complementary medical professionals and lay audiences about leading-edge science and how it dovetails with mind-body medicine and spiritual principles. He has been heartened by anecdotal reports from hundreds of former audience members who have improved their spiritual, physical and mental well being by applying the principles he discusses in his lectures. He is regarded as one of the leading voices of the new biology.
