How Science Beat the Virus

In February, Jennifer Doudna, one of America’s most prominent scientists, was still focused on CRISPR—the gene-editing tool that she’d co-discovered and that won her a Nobel Prize in October. But ...

Gene-editing pipeline takes off

Clinical trials of genome-editing agents — including CRISPR–Cas9 editors, zinc finger nucleases and TALENs — are pushing ex vivo, immuno-oncology and in vivo treatment frontiers.   Focus CRISPR Client UC Berkeley READ THE ...

The 2010s: A Decade in Review

The first decade of the 21st century introduced us to sweeping mobile and social revolutions largely driven by names like Jobs, Zuckerberg and Bezos. In the second decade that's now ...

From IVF to Gene Surgery

The first “test-tube baby” is now more than 40 years old, and all is well with her. Millions more babies have followed by means of in vitro fertilization, or ...

The CRISPR animal kingdom

China has used the genome editor more aggressively, on more species, than any other country. Early one February morning, researchers harvest six eggs from a female rhesus macaque—one of 4000 ...

CRISPR Co-Inventor ‘Disgusted’

Jennifer Doudna @doudna_lab, the co-inventor of CRISPR says she’s “horrified” and "disgusted" with how her work has been used to create gene-edited babies #CRISPRBabies #GeneEditSummit pic.twitter.com/WULlCT8zzv — QuickTake by Bloomberg ...

How To Edit A Human

This story begins nearly four billion years ago, when the Earth was just another rock in just another solar system. In a pool of sludge on that rock, something astonishing ...

The Ultimate Life Hacker

At the age of 12, Jennifer Doudna read James Watson’s The Double Helix and got hooked on science in general and genetics in particular. Four decades later, she is a molecular ...

The CRISPR Antidote

Scientists hacked the machinery of cellular warfare to splice genes. Now they’ve found a way to guard against it, too. An arms race is playing out inside your body. It’s ...

Most Accurate CRISPR Gene Editing Yet

To minimize the off-target effects of CRISPR-based genome editing, researchers have designed a version of Cas9, the enzyme that cuts DNA, that avoids mistakes with unprecedented precision. Mutating one ...
