As they dig into the data on He Jiankui's genome editing experiment, CRISPR researchers say the work he did raises many scientific questions.

Even as He Jiankui expressed pride in the work he had done to alter the CCR5 genes of twin embryos, researchers and ethicists decried him as misguided.

Southern University of Science and Technology's He Jiankui has announced the birth of twin girls who underwent CRISPR-based editing of their CCR5 genes.

The kit is designed to quantify HIV-1 RNA in blood samples and runs on Bioneer's PCR-based ExiStation automated molecular diagnostics system.

Cells that express genes linked to greater proliferation potential are more likely to downregulate the HIV provirus, according to a new study.

Qiagen's partnership and merger agreement with NeuMoDx may help it compete with high-volume molecular testing vendors such as Abbott, Hologic, and Roche.
