There have been 2 big scientific developments in 2016 and the year is only
7 days old:

1) Scientists were already waxing poetic about CRISPR, 2 weeks ago the
journal Science said the gene editing technique works so well and is so
easy to use it was the breakthrough of the year, not just in biology but in
all of science; but then just yesterday the journal Nature said that a
new modification of CRISPR has been found that makes it even more specific
and dramatically reduces its already low error rate.


2) Today Nature reports metallic hydrogen has been produced, or at least
something come very very close to it.
