The researchers who engineered the ortholog also packaged it into viral vectors to deliver gene-editing machinery to mouse cells.

UC can still salvage its CRISPR IP rights after last week's decision, but a long-shot appeal in federal court is the only possibility for total victory.

The authors framed their report as a guidebook to help regulatory agencies across the globe coordinate "consistent" rules while allowing for societal differences.
