Gene Silencing/Gene Editing

Post-transcription editing of RNAs could help scientists investigate cancer progression, discover new biomarkers, and suggest treatment targets.

Jennifer Doudna sat down with GenomeWeb to talk about being tipped for the Nobel Prize, teaching CRISPR to undergrads, and the public perception of the technology.

The findings reveal a new layer of complexity around the role of microRNAs and highlight how race can influence their role in cancer and potentially other diseases.

Scientists at CSHL's Genome Engineering meeting offered their thoughts on the Zhang Lab's discovery published Friday in Cell.

The Broad Institute's Feng Zhang and his colleagues describe a new CRISPR enzyme, called Cpf1, that may offer more accurate genome editing.
