The promise of CRISPR

In a first, researchers from the Oregon Health and Science University along with colleagues in California, China and South Korea repaired an error in the DNA sequence (mutation) in human embryos by using a gene-editing tool called CRISPR-Cas9. The mutation seen in the MYBPC3 gene causes a common heart condition called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, which is … Continue reading The promise of CRISPR
