FIRST SUCCESSFUL CRISPR/CAS9 GENE EDITING ON INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION

For the first time, astronauts have used CRISPR/Cas9 technology to edit DNA in space. The gene editing technique was deployed on the International Space Station (ISS) to induce targeted breaks in the yeast genome. Molecular changes left behind as yeast repair these breaks will provide clues about how cells repair their DNA in space. This […]
