    Today, the UK's House of Commons approved a law that would set a regulatory framework for an in vitro fertilization procedure that would create an embryo that contains DNA from three individuals. The procedure is designed to avoid having children inherit any one of a number of severe metabolic disorders that are caused by defects in the genome of the mitochondria.
