gene drive FNIH Panel on Gene Drive Regulation Emphasizes Need for Local Community Engagement Premium Researchers are hoping to make the technology a success for the environment and human health while avoiding the biases that resulted from the debate over GMOs. Anti-CRISPR Proteins, Molecules Present Tantalizing Options for Control of Therapies, Gene Drives Premium As CRISPR technology continues to progress, some researchers are turning their focus to discovering or developing countermeasures and controls. Anti-CRISPR Small Molecule Discovered Using New High-Throughput Screening Platform Researchers used the platform to identify small synthetic molecules that disrupt the editing activity of the SpCas9 nuclease. CRISPR License Agreements Prohibit Misuse, but Enforcement is Challenging Premium CRISPR technology has made its way around the world, but in the wake of the He Jiankui controversy, the industry is asking what recourse it has against misuse. Tightly Controllable Cas9 Genome Editor Could be Useful for Gene Drive Regulation Researchers in the UK developed heritable Cas9-mediated mammalian genome editing that is acutely controlled by a cheap lysine derivative.
