Genetic CopyCatcher may make CRISPR more efficient

University of California at San Diego scientists have developed a novel technology called CopyCatcher, which is capable of quantifying and detecting events in the course of CRISPR-based gene editing wherein genetic elements are copied from one chromosome to the next. This may make CRISPR more efficient in gene therapies. "These studies provide a clear proof of principle for a new type of gene therapy in which one copy of a mutated gene could be repaired from a partially intact second copy of the gene," said senior study author Ethan Bier.
