I definitely believe this is a far stretch. I believe that before we begin to genetically engineer zygotes we have to look at the ethical side of the argument. They are said to be new human species, if we wouldn't genetically engineer human zygotes, why should we do that to them? Furthermore, I don't believe that the added funding which would be necessary to support this research would be worth the investment. I feel like most of the research we need to expand our knowledge about Homo Luzonesis can be done based on the remains that have been found rather than stretching beyond what we need.

I agree that ethically that would pose the same issue seen when talking about modern human genetic engineering, but more information of this new species could be revolutionary in our understanding of early man and might even look to support many claims of early existence seeing as this species looks to be the bridge between modern and earlier man. I would really like to see how research on this continues and the kinds of information they can uncover regarding them.
