CRISPR is revolutionary. It’s also a total brute. The classic version of the #geneediting 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. Once the wires are cut, there’s no going back. So, why not add a light switch instead? And that’s just what they did. #wakeupimagine #crisprcas9 #humans #healthtech H/T Singularity University
