Researchers at the Scripps Research Institute Florida campus have refined the already state-of-the-art gene-editing system CRISPR. The new improvements boost the ability of CRISPR to target, cut, and paste genes in human and animal cells and helps to address the concerns of off-target gene mutations raised in a recent study[1]. What is CRISPR? CRISPR is short…

The CRISPR system (Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats) has exploded onto the biotech sector as a relatively simple, highly efficient, and fast method for precisely introducing breaks into genomic loci [1-2]. The realization that it is a prokaryotic acquired immune system, although less often mentioned, has been equally paradigm changing [3]. Ironically, it’s the…
