New game-changing genre editing technology is completely reversible – RT World News

U.S. researchers have revealed a significant upgrade to the CRISPR gene editing system, which, unlike its predecessor, can target specific genes with high precision and make completely reversible changes. The new gene editing technology, developed by Whitehead Institute member Jonathan Weissman and University of California San Francisco assistant professor Luke Gilbert, is called CRISPRoff. It is able to control a …

An on / off button for genre editing

A new CRISPR method allows researchers to silence most genes in the human genome without altering the underlying DNA sequence – and then reversing the changes. Credit: Jennifer Cook-Chrysos / Whitehead Institute New, reversible CRISPR method can control gene expression while remaining underlying DNA sequence unchanged. Over the past decade, the CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing system has revolutionized gene technology, enabling …

Evidence for new physics from muons magnetic moment? Maybe not according to a new theoretical calculation

When the results of an experiment do not agree with predictions from today’s best theory, something is turned off. Fifteen years ago, physicists at the Brookhaven National Laboratory discovered something confusing. Muons – a type of subatomic particle – moved in unexpected ways that did not match theoretical predictions. Was the theory wrong? Was the experiment turned off? Or exciting …

Possible SpaceX waste washes ashore in Oregon

It is an unidentified liquid object. Oregon officials are trying to determine if dirt that washed ashore Friday afternoon belonged to a SpaceX rocket. More than 100 SpaceX rockets have been launched into orbit since 2010. The alleged space debris, a large black cylindrical tube, washed up along Alsea Bay in Lincoln County and was reported to local police shortly …
