  • Modified CRISPR gene editing tool could improve therapies for HIV, sickle cell disease

    8 days ago - By ScienceDaily

    Researchers may have found a way to sharpen the fastest, cheapest and most accurate gene editing technique, CRISPR-Cas9, so that it can more successfully cut out undesirable genetic information. This improved cutting ability could one day fast-track potential therapies for HIV, sickle cell disease and, potentially, other immune conditions.
