Researchers can use this technology may eventually be able to correct lifelong genetic diseases, including progeria, in humans.
Researchers also found about 127 other shared molecules between SARS-CoV-2 and other coronaviruses that were involved in various biological processes ranging from cell to cell communication metabolic processes going on inside the cell and cell growth
The new diagnostic test can generate a positive or negative result, as well as measure the viral load, or concentration of virus, in the sample.
The study found that instead of the mutation being fixed, the chromosome carrying the mutation is gone which is a change that likely dooms the embryo.
The new capability to delete or replace long stretches of DNA could help researchers better understand disease conditions and ageing.
Nobel Prize in chemistry awarded to Emmanuelle Charpentier and Jennifer Doudna for work on CRISPR gene editing
French scientist Emmanuelle Charpentier and American Jennifer A Doudna have won the Nobel Prize in chemistry for developing a method of genome editing likened to 'molecular scissors' that offer the promise of one day curing genetic diseases
This test uses an indigenously-developed, cutting-edge CRISPR technology for detecting the virus' genome sequence
Gene-editing is "not yet ready" to be tried safely and effectively in human embryos, says panel of experts
Genome editing on embryos should not be used to create a pregnancy unless it has been "clearly established" that the changes can be made without also making "undesired changes".
Canadian researchers reveal they might be able to stop cancer from becoming drug resistant by restricting lipid synthesis
Scientists believe that cancer treatments can prove to be more effective if they simultaneously restrict LUR1, FASN and other components that could lead to the importing of lipids
Feluda is the detective character from the legendary filmmaker Satyajit Ray's stories and the Indian version to 'Detector' and 'Sherlock'.
For the study, scientists used Arabidopsis thaliana — a small flowering plant in the mustard family .
They said that it will take up to a month to see if this surgery worked and has restored the patient's vision.
First CRISPR gene editing trial in cancer patients points to safety of technique in medical treatments
The CRISPR-modified immune cells fit right into each patient’s immune system, and found in their blood nine months later.
His work had resulted in a third genetically edited baby, who had been undisclosed till earlier this week, by Chinese media.
He Jiankui and team were targeting gene CCR5, which is necessary for the HIV virus to enter into white blood cells and infect our body.
Excerpts from gene-edited baby research show it likely had unintended mutations, unknown side effects
As powerful a technology as CRISPR is, it also has the potential to introduce mistakes or unpredictable errors in important, sacred sites of a living subject's DNA.
CRISPR-Cas9 could be a ray of hope for those suffering from inherited genetic disorders like down syndrome, cystic fibrosis and thalassemia.
About 30 nations currently have legislation directly or indirectly barring all clinical use of germline editing.
If successful, the trial could trigger a sea of others for hereditary & genetic conditions affecting millions worldwide.
A Chinese scientist claimed he had secretly gene-edited the DNA of an embryo and it led to birth twin girls.
