CRISPR gene editing might be the single most important biological discovery of this century. It took many brilliant minds and years of experimentation to coalesce into a discovery that transformed the way we approach biology. With this powerful tool in hand, scientists today are making tomorrow’s history.
CRISPR editing provides a clever method to introduce precise DNA changes at specified genomic locations, allowing researchers to modify virtually any coding or non-coding region of the genome. Learn more about the history of CRISPR technology development and how CRISPR editing works.
