Genetic engineering is next doping

Scientists predict that Beijing is the most immediate contest where gene doping is likely to be present. This prediction notes a shift in some scientist's perspective, which have, for the last few years, claimed Athens is a likely hot-spot for gene doping. These comments must be seen in context. As there is no testing procedure for gene doping at Athens, it seems preferable to imagine that no such enhancements are taking place. Certainly, it is contested as to whether the science is ready, but enough scientists have been quoted as claiming that the science required for some forms of gene doping is not futuristic.
