Gene Silencing/Gene Editing

News on CRISPR, gene editing, RNAi in genetics, genomics, and molecular diagnostics.

The researchers said their method for mapping genetic interactions can serve as a blueprint for mapping the genetic landscape of human cells.

The firm's CEO Kevin Ness said confirmation of MAD7's editing activity in human HEK293T cells shows the potential for Inscripta's technology.

Locus said it will pair the EpiBiome platform with its own CRISPR-based synthetic biology system to develop products that can edit the microbiome.

Wellcome Sanger Institute researchers showed that Cas9-induced DNA breaks frequently resolved into deletions extending over many kilobases in the genome.

Researchers in the UK developed heritable Cas9-mediated mammalian genome editing that is acutely controlled by a cheap lysine derivative.

Sometimes genetic tests give inconclusive results and provide little reassurance to patients, the Associated Press reports.

Vox wonders whether gene-editing crops will be viewed similarly as genetically modified organisms of if people will give them a try.

In Science this week: research regulation and reporting requirement reform, and more.

With H3Africa, Charles Rotimi has been working to bolster the representation of African participants and African researchers in genomics, Newsweek reports.
