Three-person embryos
Mitochondria EM01.jpg
UK government has voted to legalize a gene-therapy technique that could help women to avoid passing genetic defects onto their children.

The technique called either "mitochondrial replacement" or "three-person in vitro fertilization" intention is to prevent maternal mitochondrial mutations to be passed on to children. Its estimated that estimated 1 in 5,000 children are born with these type of diseases caused by such mutations.
