Gene Silencing/Gene Editing

Exonics will use the funding to advance preclinical research from UT-Southwestern researcher Eric Olson on genome editing of DMD mutations in a mouse model.

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.

The Broad Institute's lawyers used statements from Jennifer Doudna to undermine UC's case that one could expect CRISPR/Cas9 to work in eukaryotic cells.
