Gene Therapy Name: Instructor Institution: Date: For quite some time now, the biomedical field has toyed around with the idea of creating super organisms. Such organisms were meant to have certain features which would enable them to withstand particular challenges in their environments, or have features that would help them in combating physiological problems. To do this, mastery of gene technology was paramount, since it would help them to not only alter, but manipulate the genes in a way that suited their aim. Among the most widely used instances of gene technology, is gene therapy. Gene therapy has had its own impacts, both good and bad, and in return has also brought different views both socially and ethically. Gene therapy is the alteration or adjustment of the innate structure of the genes, so as to repair them and help in preventing certain deformities of deficiencies brought about by a change in the genetic composition (Lewis, 2012). Gene therapy on the larger picture basically entails all the processes that help in enhancing the endurance and resistance of the body to d
