California passes a law that will require sellers of DIY gene editing kits to display a warning that states the kits are not intended for use on the buyer.
A team of researchers from South Korea and the United States have developed a device that can control neural circuits via a tiny implanted chip. This device may have the potential to speed up the detection of brain diseases, depression, and pain.
This article touches on the dual-use potential of 3D bio-printing and how this new technology may pose challenges for law enforcement officials when attempting to identify illicit manufacturing activities.
Scientists have invented a novel de novo protein that acts as a molecular switch to control the inner workings of a cell. This new tool represents the promise of synthetic protein manufacturing.
Researchers developed a biodegradable synthetic lipid nanoparticle (which more easily penetrates the cell) to deliver CRISPR/Cas9. The nanoparticles encapsulate messenger RNA (mRNA) encoding Cas9. and once the contents of the nanoparticles are released the cell’s protein-making machinery creates Cas9 from the mRNA template.
Two biotechnology startups plan to use CRISPR to develop paper-based diagnostics that would not require the need for Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) or next-generation sequencing.
Researchers applied CRISPR and a new anti-retroviral therapy to eliminate HIV-1 in mice injected with human bone marrow.
