Improving Cells through Gene Editing
Article

The advent of gene editing techniques has generated more excitement in biology and medicine than any discovery since polymerase chain reaction thirty years ago. By allowing the removal or addition of nearly any gene into any cell, gene editing circumvents tedious, lengthy development of cell lines for research and biomanufacturing.
