How Can Gene Editing Solve Food Allergies

Commonly encountered allergic conditions include Asthma, Allergic Rhinitis, Atopic Dermatitis, Urticaria, Conjunctivitis, and different food allergies. These are caused by a trigger of immune response in the body, which results in eosinophilic inflammation and skewing of the immune responses towards the type 2 helper cells. Moreover, allergic conditions like food allergies also involve the release…

Why Gene Editing Is The Next Food Revolution

Gene Editing has numerous uses in our lives today, which include treatment of inherited conditions like heart diseases, viral infections, and the potential prevention of certain types of cancers. However, its use is not only limited to medicine and can be used in the agriculture industry as well, where the natural food sources may be enhanced in nutrition, size, and color and made more resistant…

What Are The Pros of Genome Editing?

Ten years ago, the world had yet to be formally introduced to the term “gene editing.” Now, scientists all over the world are researching the harmful and beneficial effects of gene editing. Plant geneticists want to breed the high yield plant while critics warn against modified food’s undesirable effects on health and the ecosystem. Medical specialists wish to cure hereditary…

What is genome editing? How does it work?

Definition:Genome editing (also known as genome engineering or gene editing) was first pioneered in 1990 and defined as:‘a technique used for modification of DNA within a cell by cutting at particular sequence by an enzyme (engineered nuclease), which leads to a change in physical traits.’This technological advancement allows genetic material to be added, modified, or…

Gene Editing: How long does it take for Crispr to work?

Current Realities of Gene Editing:Gene editing technologies, specifically CRISPR-Cas9, are intensively progressing in clinical trials, covering all biological sciences from biotechnology to medicine. The clinical uses are limited to ex vivo gene editing and then putting back inpatient. Gene editing is also implacable to those diseases which require cell modification in vivo.Genome…

What is CRISPR-Cas9 and How Does it Work?

CRISPR or Cas9 is short for clustered regularly interspaced short palindrome repeats. This is a unique technology that allows geneticists and medical scientists to edit genome components by removing, adding, or modifying DNA sections. In the scientific community, the CRISPR-Cas9 system has generated optimism due to its simplicity of use, and is generally more precise and effective than other…

What is the Process of CRISPR?

Short variable sequences called spacers are interspersed between the short DNA repeats of bacterial CRISPRs. These spacers are collected from the DNA of viruses that have invaded the host bacterium before. Spacers, therefore, function as a ‘genetic memory’ of past infections. If there is another infection caused by the same virus, any viral DNA sequence matching the spacer sequence…
