Cryptochrome 1a

edited February 2016 in Everything else
Recently some German scientists have discovered that some mammals have a flavoprotein called cryptochrome 1a in their eyes, making it a possibility that they have magnetoreception. Birds are most commonly known to sense the electromagnetic fields of the earth, and their eyes also contain cryptochrome 1a.

So if we are finding out that some mammals have this protein, do you guys believe it's possible to modify humans to create or otherwise have this protein so that we would be able to sense these fields as well?
