1. There is a huge difference between GMOs and CRISPR-edited organisms in that
while GMO involves removing and adding preferred genes from one organism to the
other, CRISPR only involves cutting and pasting edits of DNA to organisms without
the introduction of foreign DNA. Technically, both are genetic modifications because
they both involve removing and correcting or in the case of GMOs, adding new
features to the genes. Both of them interfere with the genes in one way or the other.
However, according to government regulations, addition of foreign DNA to
organisms is highly restricted while CRISPR still has a lot of chances (Irving, 2020).
This means that the government allows CRISPR, but only specific modifications in
crops and animals…
