While I'm on board with what they're trying to learn, I don't know that this is the way to do it.
I'm good with gene editing to alter genes that cause disease etc., but enhancement is something else altogether. Doing it with monkeys is just a short step away from enhancing humans.
That, in my view, should never be allowed.
Human nature being what it is, we'd end up with a minority ruling elite dominating a subservient working class.
We're frighteningly close to that now without human enhancement.

It seems that most of what we've heard regarding ethically questionable research is coming out of China. In that I agree.

Chinese in China have no sense of morality.
