In this video we discuss the CRISPR-Cas9 system. We first discuss its function as an adaptive immune system against bacteriophages in streptococcus pyogenes. Then we discuss its use in genetic engineering.
CRISPR is the triumph of rape. No consideration is being given to consent issues. Genes make people and people have preferences. People refuse intimacy with some other people. No consideration is being given to the preferences of embodied genes. Rapist genes are assuming full control of nonrapist genes. This MUST be stopped!
This will be one of the reasons for the return of Jesus. To stop the rape!
I watched many videos about CRISPR before viewing this series and kept kept saying to myself "whaaaat???" Yes the disfluencies can be bothersome but if you really want to understand CRISPR you will only need to watch the series once. It is very detailed but very simple to understand. Perhaps that's why instead of saying to myself "whaaat??" I was saying "oKAAAY."
Is there a maximum number of viral genome fragments which can fit into the CRISPR locus? is it known how many viruses (or other pathogens) that the bacterium can be resistant to through this method of DNA insertion?
Re 'Crisper', noone shd be allowed to design a human. That would be rape! Its too intimate. Its too controlling. Nature throws up random creations, making each unique and accidental, not anyone else's affair or right! We shd keep it this way, not allow anyone to claim the nonconsensual intimacy of having been the originator of another.
With regard to other lifeforms, nothing not naturally occurring in any ecosystem should be allowed to be released into it, as it would disrupt it or even destroy it.
With regard to livestock or pets, nothing shd be created that is not directly related to Earth's ecosystems, as organisms already in existence are the only ones which have a right to this world, and anything created must be healthy, happy, mobile, within the boundaries of nature, and well cared for.
I disagree. One of "nature's" evolutes is the human brain. When we became powerful enough to invent medicines and technologies that altered the course of this planet, we became responsible for our evolution. We are no longer in a position to evolve according to environmental dictates. We have been gradually attaining control over our bodies and the Earth (for better or worse) for decades. A century ago the average human lifespan was 40. There is no reason I can see for not CONTINUING to attain the tools to ameliorate disease. Because we have such power,, it does not mean we should run from it. Instead, what we should ask is "how can we use this technology responsibly without doing more harm than good." It is an awesome responsibility, but I believe inevitable. Our intellectual; evolution has brought it into the light. We cannot simply say "ok let's stop our research here." It has never worked that way for humans in any realm of science....not that I can see.
In the case of plant genetic engineering the GVO-status of Crispr/Cas- knockout-plants is contentious. I have produced a video on this topic (Crisp/Cas and the new borderline cases of plant genetic engineering ; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QLpA_fYXYjc).
Because on the Internet, you don’t have to look people in the eyes, nor fear the reaction. Just like overpopulation.
And worse: You can’t take away anonymity either, at these population sizes, as, purely statistically, there’s at least 5000 people, who can find a, to them, valid reason to kill you, and have both the will and the means to do so.
If you want to do something against that, and also fix animal suffering, you can promote contraception.
Thanks for the great explanation... a few questions... where does the CRISPR repeats come from? Are the repeats from the initial virus and the viral sequences between the repeats collected from different viruses as the cell is infected over time? Does this protect the cell from all viruses, or just those viruses that have already visited?
The repeats are foreign DNA that was processed and integrated into the genome through a different Cas system. Its an acquired bacterial immune system so the cell has many many different repeat loci which it or its ancestors accumulated from viral infections. Each locus only protects the cell from viruses with the same 20 bp DNA sequence that it contains; whether a single locus can protect the cell from an infection from a virus that wasn't its initial source is dependent on the specificity of the locus sequence
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
