How some Cas9s can edit RNA targets

CRISPR pioneer Jennifer Doudna has expanded the technology’s reach to diseases involving RNA targets with a new publication showing at least two of the CRISPR-based systems used to edit nuclear DNA can also bind and cleave cytosolic RNA.

In an eLife paper this month, Doudna and colleagues at the University of California Berkeley showed that CRISPR-associated protein 9 (Cas9)
