The Food and Drug Administration took a crucial step towards a historic decision - the approval of the first medical therapy that uses gene-editing to treat a disease.
Nobel laureate Jennifer Doudna says using gene-editing technology to modify human microbiomes, potentially with the help of artificial intelligence, could eliminate some chronic diseases.
The world-famous biochemist is ready to tackle everything from immune disorders and mental illness to climate change—all by altering microbes in the digestive tract.
We may be on the cusp of an era of astonishing innovation — the limits of which aren’t even clear yet.
Editing the genomes of our gut bacteria will “create a whole new field of biology” in the coming decades, a Nobel prize-winning geneticist has said at the opening of a...
Katie Pope Kopp went through round after round of chemotherapy and a stem cell transplant to treat her non-Hodgkin lymphoma. But nothing could beat it. “I went back to get...
An experiment tests whether the gene-editing technology can stop the virus from replicating, which would ultimately wipe out the infection.
CRISPR is changing the world—but it can do more.
Using CRISPR genome editing on a few common crops, a team of plant and soil scientists seeks to vastly increase and speed up carbon storage to help fight climate change.
Jennifer Doudna was staring at a computer screen filled with a string of As, Cs, Ts, and Gs—the letters that make up human DNA—and witnessing a debilitating genetic disease being cured right before her eyes.
