CRISPR Technology: extending the frontiers of scientific research

In his article today for The Washington Post, IGI Scientific Director Jacob Corn explains how CRISPR technology is “democratizing” gene editing research in its ability to dramatically accelerate biological discovery by giving researchers an unprecedented opportunity to delve deeply into a wide variety of biological systems that were previously impenetrable.  CRISPR’s biggest impact on most people’s lives won’t be in the curing of genetic diseases:  “It’s much larger: the widening of our horizon of discovery, which could lead to advances we can’t even imagine.”
