The History of CRISPR-Cas9 Gene Editing

CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing grew out of research into bacterial immune systems that evolved to protect single-celled organisms from viral infection. Jennifer Doudna, Emmanuelle Charpentier and their colleagues revolutionized biotechnology by creating CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing systems that can be used in any cellular environment.
