.’ Transforming science The transformative potential of the technology is vast, says Anette Breindl, senior science editor at Thomson Reuters BioWorld. ‘In principle, the edits that can be done with Crispr could be done before using [earlier gene-editing techniques] zinc finger nucleases (ZFN) and transcription activator-like effector nucleases (Talens),’ she says. But the downside with those
Feature CRISPR © S H U T T E R S T O C K The consensus is that Crispr can be used to modify embryos, but that these should not develop into pregnancy infancy and urged that further investigation of Crispr in humans is ‘sorely needed’ before any clinical application
OPINION IN THE PIPELINE Derek Lowe is a medicinal chemist working on preclinical drug discovery in the US @DerekLowe | blogs.sciencemag.org/pipeline Don’t fear the Crispr Does simple gene-editing mean the end of traditional medicinal chemistry? Probably not No one should see Crispr as bad news; the universe of possible treatments has always been larger than small
BUSINESS Crispr patent ruling breaks deadlock Both sides claim victory in long-running dispute as US appeals board rules patents do not interfere with each other In the battle over patents to Crispr-Cas9 gene editing technology, the US Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) has ruled that patents granted to the Broad Institute in Cambridge, US, should be allowed to stand. However, the ruling also
Philip Ball is a science writer based in London, UK @philipcball | #Crucible The ethics of Crispr Gene editing could wipe out diseases such as Aids – but the risks can’t be ignored Easy and accurate gene editing using Crispr will, we’re told, change everything. It will ‘remake the world,’
