Mathematical Model Predicts Errors in Crispr-Cas9 DNA Targeting

When the Crispr-Cas9 system to target DNA for genetic engineering (GE) was first identified, it was seen as a game-changer.  Crispr-Cas9 is a natural defense mechanism used by bacteria to protect them from viruses that works at the cellular level by targeting and removing viral DNA. Scientists first began to see its potential for GE […]
