Gene editing: beyond the hype

Pharma Phorum

Genome editing is an exciting but still nascent field, and companies in the area face as many obstacles as they do opportunities. Zinc fingers are the most common control gene in the body,” Macrae explains. “We The genomic medicine journey. Pragmatic genomics.

AI-designed protein awakens silenced genes, one by one

The Pharma Data

By combining CRISPR technology with a protein designed with artificial intelligence (AI), it is possible to awaken individual dormant genes by disabling the chemical “off switches” that silence them. The chemical modifications that regulate gene activity are called epigenetic markers.

Epigenetic Editing with CRISPR Might Be Easier Than We Thought

XTalks

Researchers at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) and the Whitehead Institute have developed a novel CRISPR-based tool called “CRISPRoff” that can switch off genes in human cells through epigenetic editing without altering the genetic sequence itself.

Advances in Genetic Medicine May Be Outpacing Some Clinicians’ Understanding, But Pharmaceutical Marketers Can Do Much to Address the Problem

Pharma Marketing Network

Almost two decades after the human genome was sequenced, a trickle of new genetic medicines (i.e., With over 100 late-stage gene therapy trials underway and an increasing number of gene-editing technologies entering trials, it’s clear that this trickle will soon become a torrent.

Women in Science Who Have Paved the Way Forward in Genetics
