CRISPR Brings Hope for Treatment of Rare Blood Diseases

“Transformational.” “Life Changing potential.” A landmark CRISPR trial is using the power of the CRISPR cas-9 gene editing tool to tackle diseases that were deemed “incurable”. After three years of research and development has produced some exciting results, giving hope to patients suffering from two red blood diseases – beta-thalassemia and sickle cell disease (Hardy…

CRISPR Technique And Its Influence On The Human Lifespan

Aging is a complex process that every human has to go through once they reach their time. Aging is a progressive set of changes that accompany the growing or increasing age of an individual and make a person susceptible to the harsh realities of life, diseases, and ultimately death. Aging manifests in different forms in human beings. For some, it starts earlier than the expected time…

Why is CRISPR-Cas9 such a big deal?

CRISPR-Cas9 is the genome-editing tool making headlines, driving investments, and revolutionizing the world of molecular biology. CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing involves making physical changes to the DNA sequence to alter the function it serves (Vidyasagar, 2018). For example, you could alter the DNA within a tomato seed to make the fruit bigger, more pest-resistant, or even bright…

CRISPR: Gene Editing for Climate Change

The population of the world is expected to rise up to a total of 9.7 billion from the current 7.3 billion by the year 2050. Due to the significant climate change that the world is facing today, factors like pest outbreaks and increased abiotic stresses are negatively affecting tropical crop production. This is particularly worrying because the increasing population, in further leading to climate…

CRISPR Based Treatment Targeting COVID-19 and Influenza

The covid-19 was reported to have begun in Wuhan, China, after a 55-year-old man got infected on November 17, 2019. The virus soon spread to Iran and onwards until almost every country of the world got affected. This was when the WHO changed the status of the new virus from a simple epidemic to a global pandemic on March 11, 2020. Over the past year, millions of individuals all over the world have…
