Researchers from UNSW have uncovered how these tiny organisms can restore their movement in unfavourable conditions.
Asymptomatic sickle cell disease patients actually lack a tiny part of the genome, UNSW scientists have shown.
UNSW Professor Ewa Goldys leads research that uses CRISPR technology to more quickly and easily identify potentially fatal Cryptosporidium microorganisms.
Biomedical researchers have come up with a novel way to use a beam of light to deliver CRISPR gene therapy molecules targeting illnesses.
UNSW scientists in Professor Merlin Crossley’s group have shed light on a crucial mechanism in the field of epigenetics, an area of gene regulation.
Genome editing technology has, and will always have, limits. Limits that are related not to the technology itself but to the intrinsic complexity of the human genome.
The world seemed to be inching forward with CRISPR gene editing technology – but suddenly the forbidden fruit has been plucked, and some even worry that the CRISPR tree has been cut down.
Microbiologist Francisco Mojica spoke to an enthusiastic audience at UNSW Sydney about his discovery of the gene editing tool CRISPR, ranked among the most important scientific findings of this century.
In a landmark study, scientists have used CRISPR gene editing to introduce beneficial natural mutations into blood cells to boost their production of foetal haemoglobin.
A future in which our bodies are used as hard drives could change the way we conceive of human history and perceive life, writes Julie Louise Bacon.
