Gene Editing

New tool for rapid analysis of CRISPR reveals frequent, unintended DNA changes

Amidst rising hopes for using CRISPR gene editing tools to repair deadly mutations linked to conditions like cystic fibrosis and sickle cell disease, a new study in the Nature journal Communications Biology describes an innovation that could accelerate this work by rapidly revealing unintended and potentially harmful changes introduced by the gene editing process. “We’ve […] Read more
