There’s one thing about the future that we can be sure of: whatever predictions we make for it will fail miserably. Still, it’s amusing and instructive to speculate, and in that spirit we present a vision of urban life in the 80s—the 2080s, that is. Here’s a look at some of the emerging technologies that will shape the cities of seven decades hence.
Genetically modifying cells to be immune to HIV just got better.
Edited genes produced healthy hemoglobin upon reintroduction.
This cutting-edge genetic scissor can splice out driver mutations.
CRISPR-Cas9 modified vegetables have been harvested and cooked in Sweden.
Genetic engineering isn't just something that humans can do in a lab; it's also a natural phenomenon. Take a moment to uncover the facts behind this fascinating process.
CRISPR is a powerful gene-editing tool that can be used in every field--from medicine to agriculture. But what exactly is this technique and how does it work?
Cells that have been genetically-manipulated and now be grown into mini-organs, thanks to CRISPR.
We now have a way to target RNA in live cells.
Researchers are using CRISPR-Cas9 and 'gene drive' technology to eliminate malaria from a species of mosquito by making them unable to reproduce.
