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…

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…
