CRISPR on the rampage

Especially in Chicago where a CRISPR gorilla runs amok

CRISPR gene editing is one of the most exciting technologies of recent years, although most of the excitement so far involves curing people of obscure diseases and improving crops. Now a Dwayne Johnson film showcases its full potential – trashing all of downtown Chicago, for starters.

This is a must-see for fans of B-grade science fiction. The critics score at Rotten Tomatoes is 50%, but 78% of the audience loved it.
