Trove of CRISPR-like Gene-cutting Enzymes Found in Microbes By exploring the evolutionary origins of an enzyme used in the CRISPR genome-editing system, researchers have unearthed more than one million other potential editors lurking in microbial genomes. Read more...
Three UC’s Join Forces to Launch CRISPR Clinical Trial Targeting Sickle Cell Disease The University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), in collaboration with UC Berkeley (UCB) and UC Los Angeles (UCLA), have been given permission by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to launch a first-in-human clinical trial using
CRISPR-Based Anti-Viral Therapy Could One Day Foil the Flu—and COVID-19 CRISPR gene-editing technology has tremendous potential for making non-heritable DNA changes that can treat or even cure a wide range of devastating disorders, from HIV to muscular dystrophy Now, a recent animal study shows that another CRISPR system—targeting viral RNA
Nobel Prize in Chemistry Awarded to Scientists Who Discovered CRISPR Gene Editing Tool for ‘Rewriting the Code of Life’
Nobel Prize in Chemistry Awarded to Scientists Who Discovered CRISPR Gene Editing Tool for 'Rewriting the Code of Life' The Nobel Prize in Chemistry has been awarded to Emmanuelle Charpentier and Jennifer A.
