We now have the technology of Cas9 / Crispr. The issues surrounding the potential of gene-editing is now even more relevant (and scary.)
Genetic mutation can be a response to environmental conditions. By editing out mutation we may in fact be denying ourselves subtle traits.
As Aldous Huxley's 'Brave New World' highlighted, we must be so careful how we shape the future and try to influence nature. It has always been influencing us.
