THE TRANSFORMATIVE POWER OF CRISPR-CAS9
The discovery that genome engineering could be accomplished by harnessing the bacterial CRISPR-Cas9 immune defense system is one of the most-important scientific breakthroughs of our time. Like a high-precision, programmable pair of molecular scissors, this incredible tool can be used to edit any genetic sequencedeleting, exchanging, and inserting. It has ushered in a new era in which genomic manipulation is no longer a bottleneck to discovery, transforming plant and animal biology, biotechnology, and human therapeutics.
