Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2020 for CRISPR-Cas9 Genetic Scissors

On 7 October 2020, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2020 to Emmanuelle Charpentier and Jennifer A. Doudna for the development of a method for genome editing.  Currently Emmanuelle Charpentier works at the Max Planck Unit for the Science of Pathogens in Berlin, Germany, and Jennifer A. Doudna at the University of California, Berkeley, USA. Emanuelle Charpentier [1] and Jennifer A. Doudna [2] Charpentier and team published their initial discovery on bacterial genome...

What are genome editing and CRISPR-Cas9?

Genome editing (also called gene editing) is a set of technologies that enable scientists to change the genetic code in the living cells of an organism. They make it possible to make specific changes to a particular location in the genome in a controlled way. One of the approaches is known as CRISPR-Cas9. The “Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats and CRISPR-associated protein 9”, or CRISPR-Cas9 for short, was discovered by a team of CRISPR pioneers led by biochemists Emmanuelle Charpentier...
