CRISPR: Play-by-Play of an Experiment

Scientists in Jennifer Doudna’s lab pull back the veil on their gene-editing process


Clustered Regularly Interspaced Palindromic Repeat

By Hayden Field



CRISPR is a family of DNA sequences found in the genomes of prokaryotic organisms such as bacteria and archaea. These sequences are derived from DNA fragments of bacteriophages that had previously infected the prokaryote. They are used to detect and destroy DNA from similar bacteriophages during subsequent infections


And, we’ve posted about CRISPR before:

So now, what is the use of CRISPR for antiobiotics?

    The genetic information in every cell plays a key role in the body’s aging process. Now, scientists have discovered a way to use the CRISPR-Cas9–based gene editing technology to identify genes that could affect cellular senescence.

    Gene therapy is a particularly promising way to fight aging, however these treatments are far from proven or mainstream yet. If successful, these treatments could unlock tremendous value for Crispr Therapeutics (NASDAQ:CRSP).

    The company has lost roughly three-quarters of its value since early-2021. However, it’s still worth $3.95 billion — which indicates how exciting this technology is. Investors could keep an eye on this gene editing pioneer.
