    Gene drive can propel genes throughout populations combined with CRISPR genetic engineering can eliminate Lyme disease and Malaria.

    Indeed. The entry of CRISPR onto the scene reminds me of the advent of the microprocessor onto the industrial scene (shortly to be followed by the consumer scene). There are great parallels, in that both are new and powerful and have very general application. So

    CRISPR = CPU

    As for the existence of something called "gene drive", this is the first I've heard of it. Astonishing.

    Editing sperm stem cells could be the safest approach to genetically editing humans.
