Just trust us on this one: you need this hilariously catchy tune in your life this Monday. The latest tune from A Capella Science (who also brought us a beautiful Billy Joel-style tribute to entropic time) takes a look at everything CRISPR, from how it works to just some of the applications, all inside five perfectly harmonised minutes of glory.

You work so well inside a streptococcus!”

We defy you not to be humming this for the rest of your day.
