CRISPR And Cancer: A Case Study

Satisfactory Essays
CRISPR can be used to treat many types of cancer. The next question that one may ask is if we can identify this gene that causes cancer, in order to use the CRISPR technology. The next question is that if a gene can be identified then one must ask how we will use the CAS-9 system to combat the faulty genes in these cells. However, recently researchers at MIT have published an article discussing the techniques of solving these problems. The author states that the CRISPR was introduced by cutting and injecting re-introduced genes into the liver cells. This converted the mutated cell types into normal wild cell types. By using this technique researchers can now look into how the BRCA gene mutation which gives women a high probability of breast
