Question Description


Each of your responses should be one or more paragraphs long, depending upon the depth of the question. Also please cite sources properly.

  1. Give your opinion as to why the progress of gene therapy has been disappointingly slow. Give several specific examples of actual failures in gene therapy trials. Suggest the most promising avenues for future gene therapy research. What is your personal opinion of the future of gene therapy?
  2. Review the topics covered in this module, and decide which technological advance is likely to be the most influential in the next decade (do not choose gene therapy, since it was covered by the first question). Explain in detail why you chose this particular genetic technology. Back up your opinion with specific examples.
