Eliminating the protein Tudor-SN from cancer cells slowed down their growth and division.
A team led by researchers from Temple University's Lewis Katz School of Medicine (LKSOM) and the University of Pittsburg has successfully eliminated HIV infection in animal models using a gene editing technique known as CRISPR.
There's no permanent cure for HIV just yet, but scientists are getting closer. A recent experiment managed to contain HIV infection in living animals.
A team of scientists from Harvard claim that there are just two years away from resurrecting the woolly mammoth with the help of cutting-edge genetic engineering.
Scientists, for the first time, have successfully grown human cells inside early-stage pig embryos in laboratories. This means that we have created the first pig-human hybrids or interspecies chimeras.
We may be approaching a time when custom-made humans exist, depending on how current debates on open science goes. The week for the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in Alexandria has opened for quite the heated debate.
The future of gene editing is slowly approaching great promise. Recent developments surrounding CRISPR/Cas9 showed its efficiency and promise in correcting disease-causing mutations. For the first time, it was used to develop a dual gene therapy to treat hemophilia B in mice, which normally leads to a defective clotting protein.
A Swedish scientist by the name Fredrik Lanner is waltzing through the ethical line of science as he attempts to edit the genes of a healthy human embryo.
Chinese researchers to perform first ever human trial of the CRISPR-Cas9 gene-editing technique to fight non-small lung cancer.
Researchers from the Penn State University has devised a new and effective way to genetically edit foods, but the new tool seem to gather different responses due to the loose regulatory system of the U.S. Department of Agriculture defining genetically modified organisms or GMO.
