IN THE BIOTECH WORLD - RESEARCH - IMPROVING CRISPR GENE EDITING
The problem cited with gene editing is that the editing may stay switched on after it succeeded in reaching its goals. To prevent further unwarranted mutations, scientists from the Bath and Cardiff University have invented a switch that aims at controlling protein expression in cultured cells and mouse embryos with the intention of future use in humans. According to the Bath and Cardiff University, the switch enables control of the genome editing tools, making it safe by not permitting the . . .
