Updates & Corrections
Correction 18 October 2019: An earlier version of this story and its headline incorrectly stated that Denis Rebrikov had started editing eggs from a woman with a mutation that causes deafness. We have now learnt that he is claiming to have edited eggs donated by women who do not have the mutation with the goal of using this knowledge to eventually edit the eggs of deaf women. He is also testing his gene-editing tool in bodily cells of people with the mutation.
