Funds Needed

A report from MIT identifies areas of scientific research where declining research support is hindering needed advances.

The Cas9 enzyme from S. aureus can be delivered by a viral vector and could lead to more CRISPR-based research tools and novel study designs in animal models.

Genome editing technology could give researchers the ability to knock out individual species from microbiota and turn bacteria into detectors of antibiotic resistance.
