CRISPR innovation hits the gas

October 19, 2021 8:49 PM UTC

A burst of research is radically expanding tools to optimize CRISPR therapies and access new targets

A publication streak in CRISPR gene editing is building momentum for methods that can break the barriers to the technology’s use in drug development.

Researchers are rapidly moving beyond a reliance on the natural properties of Cas enzymes, turning to nuclease engineering to make the enzymes more compatible with editing disease-causing genes in humans. ...
