New CRISPR-Like System Can Be Used In Animals To Manipulate Human Genomes

A genetic editing system similar to CRISPR-Cas9 was discovered for the first time in eukaryotes – the group of organisms that includes fungi, plants, and animals. The system, based on a protein called Fanzor, can be guided to precisely target and edit sections of DNA, and could open up the possibility of using it as … Read more
