This project's goal was to examine American public opinion and media representation of CRISPR gene editing technology and its human applications. To do so, we analyzed three data sources: public opinion polls, online news articles, and tweets. Our findings show that public perception of CRISPR has been changing over time and the frequency of differently toned content (positive, negative, and neutral) fluctuates. Variation across the three types of sources reveals that American public opinion on CRISPR is not consistent.
