Designer Babies: A Trend Report

San Jose, California (PRWEB) January 20, 2014

Follow us on LinkedIn – Designer babies are defined as babies with artificial genetic makeup selected through a combination of genetic engineering and in vitro fertilization to confirm inclusion or exclusion of specific traits. The term Designer Babies is not a scientific term, but is used by journalists and highlights the fact that parents could choose specific characteristics of their unborn child including physical appearance, character and sex. Advancements in genetic engineering and in vitro fertilization approaches, coupled with the need to lower the occurrence of genetic disorders in offspring, are driving interest in the concept of designer babies. Ethical issues related to commodification of children and genetic manipulation in human offspring, are however projected to present regulatory challenges in the advancement and commercialization of the concept of designer babies in the coming years.

The trend report titled “Designer Babies” announced by Global Industry Analysts Inc., is a focused research paper which provides cursory insights into the technology concept, its evolution, and future prospects. A part of GIA’s new series of short research briefs on emerging technologies, this trend report highlights key enabling technologies including the development of Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD).
