CHANGING FAMILIES - Chipolte's E. coli outbreak appears to be over. Shares of Chipotle stock spiked almost five percent on Monday on the news.

Britain is allowing researchers to edit the genes of human embryos.

The decision is raising new questions about the ethics of the new technology.

Opponents say gene editing might eventually lead to so-called designer babies.
