Editing the Code of Life: Into the Future with CRISPR Technology with Jennifer Doudna - 2019 Nierenberg Prize for Science in the Public Interest

published 3 weeks ago by UCTV

Jennifer Doudna, co-discoverer of CRISPR-Cas9, discusses how genome editing with CRISPR technology is transforming biology. CRISPR-Cas9, an RNA-guided enzyme with remarkable abilities to recognize and cleave DNA, operates by mechanisms that both explain its biological function and provide insights into technology development. Doudna covers research into this amazing family of proteins: where they came from, how they work and how CAS-9-based technologies are revolutionizing research, biomedicine and agriculture.
