Gene editing technique could treat ALS and Huntington's disease
It might delay the onset of conditions that are normally inescapable.
Atomic 'photos' help make gene editing safer
They show exactly how CRISPR works its wonders.
Scientists reverse Alzheimer's-like symptoms in mice
Injecting the rodents with RNA fragments helped them live substantially longer, too.
Crop spray gives plants GMO benefits without altering genes
Nanoparticle-based "BioClay" protected tobacco plants from viruses.
Scientists track gene parts controlling the embryo's early growth
Their new method could help interpret genetic signals sent from mother to embryo.
Science exonerates HIV's 'Patient 0'
Genetic reconstruction shows that the virus had been circulating for years in the US before the patient arrived.
Gene editing records 'memories' in human DNA
Sequencing these genes tells you what happened to them.
RNA gene editing could stop viruses in their tracks
Scientists have discovered that the CRISPR technique isn't limited to DNA.
Researchers create mirror image of DNA-copying protein
This important step paves the way for reverse-versions of molecules that might be more resistant to viral attacks.
