Human Genome Editing Survey

Hey guys,

Apologies for posting everywhere before... I didn't know how to make a new post haha

I'm currently in year 10 doing Extended Investigation, so if anyone could fill the survey out it would be much appreciated :)

Thanks!

What kind of things are you investigating? We are looking at similar themes in 1/2 bio at the minute, specifically around the ethics of genetic modification, cloning and embryonic stem cells.
the cage is shattered
the songbird sings
of her freedom once more

soars in blue
basks in the light
leaving nothing
but notes behind

she is never going
back in that cage

Hi Laura, I'm mostly looking into the ethics of human genome editing, not so much cloning and embryonic stem cells. My investigation is largely based on society's opinion on the topic. I hope to evaluate the survey in order to conclude if and how further research should be conducted in Australia, with a specific comparison to people's attitudes in China (a complete opposite country in a variety of factors) with a corresponding survey to see the impact a different environment can have on people's mindset.

Comparing attitudes in different countries: very interesting!

This sounds so detailed and interesting and amazing. Maybe you could share a snippet on AN when you're finished?  :P

Yes please! Would love to read it, just out of interest!

Of course, would love for more people to find out about it as it is an ongoing area of research!

Wow! At the minute I'm looking at the ethics of stem cell research and human cloning for my religion and society class and came to many similar conclusions. On the whole, people are a lot more willing to accept medical uses of these sciences but are resistant to using them for cosmetic reasons.

What were the main differences between the opinions of Chinese and Australian people?

What you are studying does seem to conclude with very similar findings to mine, here's a small section of my discussion:
Overall, across the three surveys, circumstances involving somatic cell editing for life threatening diseases is supported most. From there, a somewhat steady decline of acceptance that varies in degree between the three surveys is seen as paring of the applications which also include debilitating diseases, embryonic alteration and non-disease traits. It is visible from the results that Australia is more supportive of genome editing to cure diseases, but China is more accepting of human genome editing for non-disease uses.

Wow, that's an interesting thought, but seems to match what I've found. I think that the Christian influence in Australia changes the way we view things, whether or not we adhere to the religion.

Yeah I definitely agree with that as religion is a crucial part of the reason there is quite a difference in attitudes.

Did your survey look at religious views? I think I remember it doing so but I could be wrong...
