NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Researchers have used genome editing for the first time to study gene function in early human embryonic development.

UK and South Korean researchers led by the Francis Crick Institute's Kathy Niakan aimed to elucidate the molecular mechanisms underlying the first cell fate decisions in the human embryo, which are not well understood, they wrote in their paper, published today in Nature.
