HOW CRISPR/ Cas9 Works Video

“CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing can make permanent, precisely targeted changes in patients’ chromosomes and repair the underlying genetic mutation, whereas more traditional gene therapy typically involves introducing a non-permanent copy of a gene into patients’ cells. These attributes of CRISPR/Cas9 provide a significant therapeutic edge over other gene therapy and costly earlier-generation genome editing technologies, such as zinc finger nucleases and transcription activator-like effector nucleases.” – Intellia Therapeutics
