Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats, or CRISPR is a cool and a powerful tool. This breakthrough technology now allows us to modify or edit genes with ease and precision. Trials of this new genetic engineering technology are already underway seeking to eradicate various debilitating genetic diseases.
What does this mean for us individually and globally? How does it work?
Join Eden McQueen, a PhD student in the Department of Biology at the University of Pittsburgh who has worked with CRISPR in the lab.
