Gene Editing Scissor Tool May Also be a Dimmer Switch

Gene Editing Scissor Tool May Also be a Dimmer Switch

Scientists have found evidence that there is a second role for the widely used gene-cutting system CRISPR-Cas9 — as a genetic dimmer switch for CRISPR-Cas9 genes. Its role of dialing down or dimming CRISPR-Cas9 activity may help scientists develop new ways to genetically engineer cells for research purposes.
