The CRISPR revolution: A new era in genome editing

Author(s): Dr. Pratibha Tiwari
Abstract:
This article provides an in-depth exploration of CRISPR-Cas9, a ground breaking genome editing technology that has revolutionized the field of genetic research. It begins with a historical overview of CRISPR, tracing its origins from a natural defense mechanism in bacteria to its development into a powerful tool for precise genetic manipulation. The mechanism of action of CRISPR-Cas9 is then elucidated, highlighting its role as a molecular scissor guided by RNA to target specific DNA sequences for editing. The transformative impact of this technology on genetic research is discussed, emphasizing its contributions to various scientific domains, including medicine, agriculture, and bioengineering. Furthermore, the article addresses the ethical considerations and debates surrounding genome editing, particularly the implications of germline modifications and the potential for misuse. Potential applications and future directions of CRISPR-Cas9 are explored, revealing its vast possibilities in treating genetic disorders, enhancing crop resilience, and more. This comprehensive review underscores the significance of CRISPR-Cas9 in advancing genetic research while acknowledging the need for responsible and ethical application in this rapidly evolving field.
