CRISPR: An Emerging Technology for Genome Editing

CRISPR: An Emerging Technology for Genome Editing

CRISPR is an abbreviation of Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats. In simpler words, it is a family of DNA sequences in bacteria and other microorganisms. These CRISPR sequences are a crucial component of the immune systems of such organisms, playing a vital role in the bacterial defense mechanism in comb8ination with a protein (Cas9) to modify the genes within the organisms. CRISPR falls under the most specific and commonly used gene editing techniques wherein major investment is taking place in the biotechnology industry. What Is CRISPR? CRISPR is an…
