The way to extend the human lifespan might live in the sea.
CRISPR gene editing is a revolutionary technology that allows us to create, and recreate, life.
A new technique allows chemical bases to be modified without breaking the structure of DNA.
Are humans next?
No doubt, this will lead to a whole host of advancements in the field.
Liver disease, hepatitis B, sickle cell disease, cardiovascular disease, muscular dystrophy, and Huntington's disease are all in CRISPR's sights.
Would we still be human?
The researchers were able to use CRISPR-Gold to induce HDR in human embryonic stem cells and muscle cells from a mouse in vitro.
“Antibiotics are weapons of mass destruction: extremely powerful but imprecise.”
For the first time ever, scientists used gene editing in human embryos to change a single letter in a faulty gene.
