Editas Medicine, a startup that wants to enable “molecular surgery”  to cut out bad genes before they can manifest themselves, has $43 million in Series A funding from Polaris Partners, Flagship Ventures and Third Rock Ventures.  Co-founder Dr. J.Keith Joung, who is also director of molcular pathology at Mass General Hospital, told The Boston Globe that the idea is to “make changes to DNA … if there’s a defect, you can fix it; if there’s a missing piece you can put the missing piece in.”

KHAAAAAAAAN!!! Seriously, though, this is venture funding to build technology that can be used to build the Master Race, one genetic graft at a time.
