Humid, Cassim discussed on This Week in Science


And so you could remove something that you know, you want to remove and inadvertently affects the animal in another way. But then my listening. For that. That also just the fact that you didn't get the question you asked answered but something else was answered getting the job done. And that's something that has happened for a long time in gene knockout animals. You know, this this knocking jeans out or knocking pudding genes in knock ins knockouts? This has been happening for a long time without crisper. You know, researchers have been doing this for a couple of. Evolution. All of the things that we're trying to Cassim. But in in a research sense, when you're trying to like, you said, you, you know, you knock something out and something else happens potentially your question that you were say asking is an answered, but you learn something new and so that is part of this. That absolutely. As part of this. There's a lot going on here. I, you know, there are people. I'm sure there are many people in the audience who. Don't wanna see animal research like this take place, but animal research at this point is still a necessity, and if we can reduce the number of animals that we are using that is a good use of science, and also I can tell you that I've never met who works with animals who said I wish this was less efficient. I knew I do what I do hope though. Yeah. Everyone wants it to be more efficient. But what I do hope is that as we're pushing this, you know, bleeding edge of technology and scientific and advant advant advancement. I really hope that all the countries that are an and institutions that are invested in. It are are playing by the rules that we have set for animal research because leave human research animal research, there are standards and what we know. That's not true. Not true in the country, speak humid's. We know this is not going. So that's a great hope..
