Genetically engineered designer babies could be just two years away and spark a revolution in editing human embryos, scientists have said.

Researchers have predicted the “ethically sound” creation of the so-called designer babies by 2022.
It is expected to spark a revolution in a new wave of genetic medication of humans.
Kevin Smith, from Abertay University in Dundee, has published analysis that found the risks of gene editing are now low enough to warrant its use with human embryos.
He argued a morally justifiable attempt could be less than two years away.
And he predicted such research could kick-start a revolution in producing genetically-modified (GM) people.
