Genome Editing Technology vs Transgenic Technology

Genome editing technology Genome editing technology enables genetic engineering where DNA is replaced, deleted or inserted in the genome of a living organism, and the emergence of CRISPR-Cas9 system has further facilitated the realization of precise genetic modifications. Gene mapping and precise genetic modifications by inducing targeted DNA double-strand breaks opened up new avenues for […]

The Comparison Between Three Generation Genome Editing Technologies

Genome editing refers to a type of genetic engineering in which DNA is replaced, deleted or inserted in the genome of a living organism using engineered nucleases. These engineered nucleases enable efficient and precise genetic modifications by inducing targeted DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs) that stimulate the cellular DNA repair mechanisms, There are currently three families […]

The Applications of Genome Editing Technology

Genome editing technology enables manipulations at genome level where DNA is replaced, deleted or inserted in a living organism. Classic genome editing approaches depend on homology-directed repair and the totipotency of stem cells to facilitate the modification of the individual gene. The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2007 was awarded to the discoveries of […]
