Genome Editing

Tools like CRISPR/Cas (protein-RNA guided) and TALENs (protein guided) make specific changes to the DNA of plants, animals, and microorganisms typically without incorporating foreign DNA

Lux logo LUX TAKE:

Genome editing is the future of agriculture, food ingredients, and medical therapeutics, but CRISPR/cas9 is not the be-all, end-all genome editing approach. Look for alternative cas proteins and non-CRISPR-based tools as legitimate, affordable, widely applicable options rather than focusing solely on CRISPR/Cas9. For human therapeutics progress, focus on scientific and clinical trial results ...
