CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing
CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing exploits the CRISPR-Cas system to modify a genome in a targeted manner. Guided by RNA, the Cas9 endonuclease breaks DNA at a target sequence. Imprecise repair of the double strand break can result in insertion or deletion mutations, while repair pathways can be engineered to introduce specific point mutations or insertions.
