Here, a cautionary perspective on the possible blind spots and risks of CRISPR and related biotechnologies is presented, focusing in particular on the stochastic nature of cellular control processes.

Keywords: CRISPR; biotechnology; gene regulatory networks; genetic editing; noise; nonlinear dynamics; stochasticity.
