Replaced by genetically-edited children's revelations, the organizers are breathing out when the controversial scientist in the midst of "breakthroughs" takes on the scene.
South Korean scientist Jiankui talks about Hong Kong's biomedical experts' speech Wednesday after publishing first-world genetically edited baby first-hand claims.
In a video posted on YouTube, a university professor pointed out that two weeks ago two twin births had been modified by DNA to prevent HIV hiring.
Movement – which was the first doctor to be true – fostered a strong debate between the scientific community, which worried about the lack of true data and the genes of embryos and healthy editing for children.
2nd International Human Genome Editorial The summit organizers, as it opened on Tuesday, did not know about work.
David Baltimore, a biologist and summit chair, said AFP said it was "trustworthy" for the conference.
"I have not seen any research and I do not know what he is thinking about," said Baltimore.
The main conferences were held during the press conference on the opening day, after the conference, they received international attention in the revelations of the gene child.
John Christodoulou, a genomic physician at Melbourne University, said the investigation seemed to have overcome "conventional ethical processes."
"But the person who has done so is to edit human embryos and bring them to their birth … there is a real risk of the so-called disabling effects," he added.
"Technology can cause mutations or eliminate chromosomes in other areas when we are in the direction."
Margaret Sleeboom-Faulkner of Sussex University said AFP on Tuesday "will be very wise to ensure that this standard does not happen."
He was educated at Stanford University and works in the southern China laboratory of the city of Shenzhen, the twentieth "was changing with DNA CRISPR, which allows scientists to suppress and replace stress.
Gene editing is a possible solution of hereditary illnesses, but it is highly controversial that changes will be transmitted to future generations and eventually lead to a complete gene pool.

Qiu Renzong, for the first time, said the vice president of the Ethnic Committee of the Chinese Health Ministry said in a report on gene editing that China's loose regulations mean that scientists who do not rule regularly do not have any punishment and I think the ministry has no teeth. "
He has participated in the debate on He Jiankui on Wednesday and talks on Thursdays on the development of human principles by developing moral principles and security standards.
But skeptical experts questioned the advanced claim, as well as other fronts.
The Chinese National Health Commission has ordered "immediate investigation", as the Xinhua news agency has said, while the Shenzhen hospital admitted its involvement in the research program.
While the university worked there, he went further, without paying any payments in February, and his claims called "academic ethics and serious acoustic standards".
He did not answer in the AFP's opinion.
Human DNA editing is highly controversial, and in many countries it is well controlled.
But this is not the first time Chinese researchers experiment with human embryo technology.
In September last year, Sun Yat-sen University scientists used an adapted version of the gene expression to correct a mutation of human embryos.
There is also a historical fraud in the academic community of China, including the last year's scandal, which resulted in the withdrawal of 100 "committed" academic papers.
A Chinese group of 100 scientists said they had a conversation with Hu Jiankui's claims and called "China's reputation and global development in biomedical research".
