Jennifer Doudna on the future of CRISPR.
In the future, we may be able to turn CRISPR off whenever we wanted.
Gene therapy shows promise for treating diseases and the longstanding mysteries of medical science. But what is gene therapy and how does it work?
For the first time in a live animal, researchers have successfully reversed a gene mutation, called a “duplication mutation,” by gene editing.
Researchers have engineered a gene therapy system to dampen pain. They've shown it to be effective in mice, for both short-term and long-term pain.
Scientists modified brain tissue from modern humans to carry a gene that once belonged to Neanderthals.
An outbreak of avian flu in chickens can mean millions of birds dead and billions of dollars lost. This startup wants to engineer flu-resistant poultry.
Sufferers of celiac end up with some pretty lack-luster pastries. A startup thinks CRISPR can help.
Base editing has proven useful for correcting disease-causing point mutations in animals — and now, human trials are on the horizon.
