New Technique Boosts Researchers’ Ability to Edit Genomes

Researchers from the Gladstone Institute of Cardiovascular Disease and the University of California in San Francisco have recently found a quicker way to boost the introduction and/or identification of rare mutations in the human genome without compromising its integrity. Bruce Conklin and coworkers describe their findings in Nature Methods. The new technique allows induction or […]
