New CRISPR Tool Turns Gene Editing Into A Switch.

Gene editing has revolutionary abilities. It’s also very brutal; because once you have edited and intervened with the gene, there is no going back.

That’s how it was… until now.

A new development in gene editing, which has been named CRISPRon and CRISPRoff, can silence a gene for generations, and turn it back on if needed.

How? It’s called epigenetics and it is incredibly powerful because a single epigenetic machine has the ability to control hundreds or thousands of genes.

Not only does this make gene editing a less invasive technology, but also allows scientists to experiment and find the best possible solutions for better, longer, healthier lives!

A New CRISPR Tool Flips Genes On and Off Like a Light Switch

CRISPR is revolutionary. It’s also a total brute. The classic version of the gene editing wunderkind literally slices a gene to bits just to turn it off. It’s effective, yes. But it’s like putting an electrical wire through a paper shredder to turn off a misbehaving light bulb.
