Scientists are now genetically engineering monkeys using CRISPR in an attempt to understand how autism affects the brain.
Altering the genome, typically to better understand gene and protein function. This also paves the way for gene therapy.
George Church talks about his disappointment with the Human Genome Project, the blistering price/performance improvements in both DNA synthesis and sequencing, and CRISPR’s strength and weaknesses, in addition to the improvements he hopes to see in its successors.
The deal gives Editas Medicine an exclusive ‘first’ to negotiate for licenses to genome-editing inventions that rise from the sponsored research.
Wrinkles aren’t just a sign of ageing on our appearance, but also occurs deep inside on a cellular level. These wrinkles appear to prevent our genes from functioning properly, researchers have found.
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.
