Could CRISPR Be Coming To The Food Industry?

What is CRISPR? Pronounced “crisper,” Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats, is a naturally occurring system that simplifies and accelerates the task of manipulating a genome. It makes the process of genome editing more efficient, the outcome more programmable, and the changes more subtle. So that mushroom that turns brown after you slice it? No […]

The Future of Genetic Editing

The Future of Genetic Editing

Can the future of genetic editing be summed up in one word? Yes: CRISPR. An acronym for “clustered, regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats,” CRISPR is a biological system for altering DNA that is easier, more cost-effective, and quicker than older genetic engineering methods.   Co-discovered in 2012 by Molecular biologist Professor Jennifer Doudna and Emmanuelle […]
