AGENCY OF RELEVANCE CRISPR Clustered 2016 A-Z Culture Glossary

AGENCY OF RELEVANCE
CRISPR
Clustered Regularly-Interspaced Short Palindromic
Repeats (CRISPR) is a gene-editing technique that will
likely transform the world. CRISPR makes it easy,
cheap, and fast to move and combine genes around —
even genes from bacteria to people. Researchers have
already reversed mutations that cause blindness,
stopped cancer cells from multiplying, and made cells
impervious to the virus that causes AIDS. Expect to
learn more about CRISPR in 2016, and witness the
accelerating debate about rules for the life sciences.
