Summary of "Genetically Modified Babies and a First Application of Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats (CRISPR-Cas9)."

The world's first babies with CRISPR-Cas9 (Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats)-edited genes were born on November 25, 2018. Dr. Jiankui He of Southern University of Science and Technology in Shenzhen performed this gene editing. Dr. He's objectives and an assessment of how well they were achieved are discussed in the context of existing research in this area.This is an open-access article distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-Non Commercial-No Derivatives License 4.0 (CCBY-NC-ND), where it is permissible to download and share the work provided it is properly cited.

The potential application of genome editing by using CRISPR/Cas9, and its engineered and ortholog variants for studying the transcription factors involved in the maintenance of phosphate homeostasis in model plants.

Phosphorus (P), an essential macronutrient, is pivotal for growth and development of plants. Availability of phosphate (Pi), the only assimilable P, is often suboptimal in rhizospheres. Pi deficiency ...

Public attitudes towards genetically modified polled cattle.

Genetic modification of farm animals has not been well accepted by the public. Some modifications have the potential to improve animal welfare. One such example is the use of gene editing (i.e. CRISPR...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Repetitive nucleic acid sequences that are principal components of the archaeal and bacterial CRISPR-CAS SYSTEMS, which function as adaptive antiviral defense systems.

Food derived from genetically modified organisms (ORGANISMS, GENETICALLY MODIFIED).

Adaptive antiviral defense mechanisms, in archaea and bacteria, based on DNA repeat arrays called CLUSTERED REGULARLY INTERSPACED SHORT PALINDROMIC REPEATS (CRISPR elements) that function in conjunction with CRISPR-ASSOCIATED PROTEINS (Cas proteins). Several types have been distinguished, including Type I, Type II, and Type III, based on signature motifs of CRISPR-ASSOCIATED PROTEINS.

Devices that babies can suck on when they are not feeding. The extra sucking can be comforting to the babies and pacify them. Pacifiers usually are used as a substitute for the thumb in babies who suck on their thumb or fingers almost constantly.

Equipment and furniture used by infants and babies in the home, car, and play area.
