RNA-Targeting CRISPR-Cas9 Cures Neurological Diseases In Living Cells

The research into new forms of CRISPR seems never-ending. It is an ongoing goal of scientists around the world to expand scientific knowledge on different kinds of CRISPR and also creating newfound capabilities for the existing varieties. Since the greater the flexibility of the tools available to science, the more treatments and medicines that can […]

RNA Editing Allows Cephalopods To Alter Genetic Instructions

The central dogma of molecular biology and genetics is pretty straightforward. You take DNA, then you transcribe the desired gene into RNA (usually mRNA) and, once outside of the nucleus, you translate that RNA using ribosomes into amino acids that then form proteins. Those proteins then do the actual function that their original genetic encoding […]
