When Did Humans First Use CRISPR?

An unusual pattern of DNA sequences in a gene belonging to Escherichia coli, a microbe that lives in the intestine, was discovered by a Japanese team of scientists at Osaka University in 1987. The gene tended to have five short repeated fragments of DNA divided by short ‘spacer’ DNA sequences that did not repeat. The five repeated fragments had similar sequences, the building blocks of…
