Genetic engineering is the deliberate modification of the characteristics of an organism by manipulating its genetic material. A so-called designer baby would be the result of genetic modification undertaken to create desired traits in the child. It is not yet a reality but it is enormously controversial and the subject of fierce debate worldwide.
Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) is a procedure that is performed prior to implan...

The practice of fertility treatments including IVF has undergone remarkable developments over the past few years. The first baby was born using a stem cell in-vitrofertilisation technique in 2015. This technique utilised the stem cells of healthy, undeveloped eggs as precursors to form eggs. An ovarian tissue sample was taken from the mother, and analysed to identify the egg stem cells. Once identified, the egg stem cells were removed f...
