Gene Silencing/Gene Editing

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

Autophagy-associated genes appear to be important for immune evasion, but losing multiple of these genes could also make cancers resistant to T cell activity.

The diagnostics are capable of detecting fewer than two parasites per microliter of blood and would cost an estimated $.61 per test.

The company said it will use the capital to accelerate the growth and development of its infrastructure and CRISPR-based chips.

The company's technology uses CRISPR to deplete unwanted nucleic acid sequences from NGS libraries, leaving behind targets of interest.

The company's approach combines whole-genome sequencing, CRISPR, liquid biopsy, and gene therapy to target cancer cells with gene fusions.

UK Royal Statistical Society is organizing a working group to develop guidelines for assessing COVID-19 tests, the Guardian reports.

The Washington Post reports that the White House chief of staff has asked the US Food and Drug Administration to justify the stricter standards it is seeking for a coronavirus vaccine.
