New Mini-CRISPR Systems Could Dramatically Expand the Scope of Gene Therapy

CRISPR has revolutionized genome engineering, but the size of its molecular gene-editing components has limited its therapeutic uses so far. Now, a trio of new research papers detail compact versions of the gene-editing tool that could significantly expand its applications. While we’ve been able to edit genomes since the 1990s, the introduction of CRISPR in … Continue reading New Mini-CRISPR Systems Could Dramatically Expand the Scope of Gene Therapy
