The fear of having a gene drive in the wild and horizontal transfer triggering an unforeseen outcome is too readily imagined, and the regulation is still far behind the potential impact. More research and careful steps will be needed before these technologies invoke the desired acceptance. With great power comes great responsibility.

At 21:25, there is an underlying assumption that the daisy-drive dies off and threshold-drive takes over at the edge, but it is unclear to me why some daisy-drive offsprings might not make it to the edge and infiltrate the neighboring town.

It is very very very dangerous. can jump species, and destroy all ecosystems and could end all life on earth. April 15, 2019 Reply SY C Very informative introduction to Gene Drive! Thanks!
