CRISPR Repairs DNA Even Without Donor Template

CRISPR-Cas9 can carry out precise genome editing even without the assistance of donor DNA templates, a team of scientists from Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard have found.

Gene Editing Could Cure Fatal Muscle Disease

The editing of muscle cells in young beagles, bred to Duchenne muscular dystrophy, to remove a key barrier to higher protein production could greatly further the treatment of the disease in humans.

CRISPR-Cas9 Delivered Directly to Human Sperm

The CRISPR genome editing method has been delivered directly in human sperm cells giving hope that correcting mutations in human sperm cells is possible and may lead to the prevention of disease being passed on by fathers.
