Editing bacterial resistance via gene drives

UCSD study shows how gene drives could tackle antimicrobial resistance

In a new take on combating antimicrobial resistance, a UCSD team developed a gene drive system that could reduce resistance more efficiently than conventional CRISPR-based editing.

CRISPR-based gene drive technologies have been used in diploid organisms to copy genes from one chromosome to another via homologous recombination and increase population-wide frequencies of
