The researchers told the press, “More in-depth studies will be necessary, however, to assess the impact of this massive editing on normal cell processes, since collateral damage may occur... Therefore, strong biological controls as well as new experimental and bioinformatics [approaches] will be needed to overcome such a challenge."
