Gene Silencing/Gene Editing

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

The commission will develop a framework for scientists, clinicians, and regulatory authorities on the appropriate use of human germline genome editing. 

The two-year award will fund development and commercialization of the firm's HLS-Catch platform and follows a previous grant of $191,535.

The researchers used circularly permuted Cas9 variants to produce four cytosine and four adenine base editors with an expanded editing window.

To solve the problem, the researchers developed new variants of the editors that still edit DNA efficiently but have significantly lower RNA editing activity.

As CRISPR technology continues to progress, some researchers are turning their focus to discovering or developing countermeasures and controls.

23andMe and Airbnb have partnered to offer "heritage travel," according to Venture Beat.

China may include regulations protecting genes and embryos in its update of its civil code, Nature News reports.
