So you would take the DNA, mutate it in a test tube, put it back into a cell, and then kind of study the function.


At a banal level, we had "test tube babies," where we combined sperm and an egg in a test tube, and then put it back in a woman's womb...


And IPO happened nine months is that...?


So that -- the in vitro part is the same. In that case, you're not really mutagenizing anything...


But you could imagine that if your embryo had some genetic would be able to do that -- you could wash it essentially...
