NICER: A safer alternative to CRISPR/Cas9 for gene editing

NICER: A safer alternative to CRISPR/Cas9 for gene editing - Blog

CRISPR/Cas9 method can lead to unintended DNA mutations that can have negative effects. Recently, Japanese researchers have developed a new gene-editing technique that is as effective as CRISPR/Cas9, yet significantly reduces these unintended mutations. In a new study published in Nature Communications , researchers led by Osaka University have introduced a new technique called NICER, […]
