Called Mammoth Biosciences, the company is working on a credit card-sized paper test and smartphone app combo for disease detection. But the applications extend beyond that: The same technology could be used in agriculture, to determine what’s making animals sick or what sorts of microbes are found in soil, or even in the oil and … Continue reading This company is making an at-home CRISPR kit to find out what’s making you sick
Crispr is making biology more programmable than ever before. And the biotech execs staking their claims in Crispr’s backend systems have read their Silicon Valley history. They’re betting biology will be the next great computing platform, DNA will be the code that runs it, and Crispr will be the programming language.
Over the next decade, gene editing could help humanity overcome some of the biggest and most persistent challenges in global health and development. The technology is making it much easier for scientists to discover better diagnostics, treatments, and other tools to fight diseases that still kill and disable millions of people every year, primarily the poor.
It may not yet be the gene-editing world we may have imagined when we first learned of CRISPR-Cas9, but it looks like 2018 may be the year that future finally gets underway at last. Finally, human trials are about to get underway in Europe and the U.S. The targets of the these trials are two genetic blood … Continue reading Human CRISPR trials will happen in 2018. They’ll look like this.
Crispr Classic can be clunky, unreliable, and a bit dangerous. But this year, newer, flashier gene editing tools began rolling off the production line.
