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.
2020 was a big year for the gene-editing tool CRISPR. It was used to cure disease, edit DNA in a human's eye, and even gene-edit pigs to grow suitable organs to transplant into humans.
Using CRISPR to stop the replication of SIV, a primate virus closely related to HIV, researchers may have taken a step to wiping the virus out in the body.
Gene drives could wipe out malaria. It's risky, but scientists say it's getting safer.
A mutation of the CCR5 gene can cure HIV — and thanks to CRISPR, scientists may soon be able to study it in animal models.
Using CRISPR, scientists have identified a gene that could determine whether coral reefs are highly susceptible to bleaching or not.
