Revolutionizing the CRISPR method  SCIENCE DAILY · 1 week
Researchers have refined the famous CRISPR-Cas method. Now, for the very first time, it is possible to modify dozens, if not hundreds, of genes in a cell simultaneously. more
Revolutionising the CRISPR method  PHYS.ORG · 1 week
Everyone's talking about CRISPR-Cas. This biotechnological method offers a relatively quick and easy way to manipulate single genes in cells, meaning they can be precisely deleted, replaced or modified. Furthermore, in recent years, researchers have also been using technologies based... more
