A Primer on Gene Editing

Gene editing has recently emerged as a revolutionary scientific tool that may be utilized for therapeutic applications such as curing disease, as well as for the creation of animal models for disease research and therapeutics development, agricultural development, genome-wide screening, and basic research. In the past two decades, significant advances have been made in genome editing technologies by usingimpactChris’s systems comprised of nucleases combined with target sequence-specific DNA binding domains, allowing for direct manipulation of virtually any gene.
