Are gene drive technologies currently being used to address public health or other concerns?

Category: Gene Drive Description

Engineered gene drive technologies currently (2022) are in the discovery phase and are only being tested in the laboratory as part of ongoing research and development efforts. No engineered drive technologies are being used outside the laboratory. However, efforts are underway to lay the technical and regulatory groundwork to support informed decisions about the potential field testing and large-scale use of gene drive technologies.
