What should doctors do when patients are pushing hard to get treatment they’ve seen in a TV ad or read about online? Why are diverse labs winning at science, and what went down at this year’s CRISPRcon?
Altering the genome, typically to better understand gene and protein function. This also paves the way for gene therapy.
Probably not. But there is an increasing demand for people with data and computing skills, and the life sciences sector in California may be losing the battle with Silicon Valley for those people.
Singapore could become the second country to legalise MRT but they are considering a new method that differs from the two currently legal in the UK.
Scientists now have easy access to the full power of CRISPR, without any learning curve, thanks to Synthego’s Engineered Cells Portfolio.
The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters, which is one of the world’s richest science awards in the world, have announced its award will go to three discoverers of the genome-editing tool, CRISPR-Cas9.
U.S. regulators have put a halt on a clinical trial planned to use CRISPR technology on sickle-cell patients due to ‘unspecified questions’, CRISPR Therapeutics said on Wednesday.
Genetics is influencing more and more of our decisions, but we can’t make the right choices if we don’t understand it.
Scientists have successfully developed a far easier way to manipulate different genes by using a common research model, baker’s yeast.
Researchers at the RIKEN Center for Brain Science have discovered a mutation that can protect against Alzheimer’s disease in mice.
Researchers have slowed the growth of pancreatic cancer by harnessing CRISPR genome editing to remove key molecules implicated in its spread.
Researchers have developed a new technique for the powerful gene editing tool CRISPR to restore retinal function in mice afflicted by a degenerative retinal disease. This is the first time researchers have successfully applied CRISPR technology to a type of inherited disease known as a dominant disorder.
