The Era of Genome Editing
Gene or genome editing technologies are the hot trend in scientific community. There are several relative technologies which allow scientists not only to change precisely specific DNA sequences but also to change the regulation of gene expression in a well-defined region of the genome and in a specific way at the same time. This approach has thus far allowed the precise modification of genome sequences but it will probably prove to be a new tool for the discovery of novel functions of the genome.
