The US Patent and Trademark Office is opening another interference proceeding in the CRISPR patent fight.

The company is aiming to create a suite of products that can help researchers and manufacturers engineer various genomes at scale for multiple purposes.

The process challenges claims made in certain UC Berkeley patents on the use of CRISPR-Cas9 to edit eukaryotic genomes.

The researchers were able to engineer variants of the base editors that reduced the off-target RNA SNVs while maintaining their on-target DNA editing.

Researchers from the Broad Institute and NIH characterized a CRISPR-associated transposase that can integrate DNA into unique sites in the E. coli genome.

An analysis using UK Biobank data indicates that the CCR5-Δ32 gene mutations He Jiankui reportedly attempted to introduce into human embryos may be deleterious.
