COLD SPRING HARBOR, NY (GenomeWeb) – Researchers have developed a new tool based on the CRISPR/Cas9 gene-editing approach to identify functional genetic differences between species, populations, and individuals.

Genome-wide association studies have generated lists of genetic loci associated with a number of traits and conditions, but it has been difficult for researchers to drill down to causal variants.
