Description:

A new wave of super athletes may soon be joining our favorite teams. Empowered by a technique called gene doping, athletes can alter their genes to improve their athletic abilities. Obvious challenges, both scientific and social, continue to surface as gene doping emerges as an option for athletes. Today, gene editing technologies, CRISPR and others, have greatly increased the effectiveness of genetic enhancement, while decreasing the cost. Gene editing is progressing quickly and athletes may be one of the first groups to embrace the technology. In this case study, you will review a short video and article; answer short response questions; create your ideal athlete; and lastly, you will print out a description of your athlete and bring it to class.
