Genetically engineered mice make human embryos more resilient to pneumonia

Mice engineered to resist the deadly coronavirus are making human embryos as well as other animal embryos more resistant to pneumonia, researchers report.In a paper published in the journal Nature Communications, the researchers used an innovative method to genetically engineer mice with immune-boosting antibodies and a “non-pneumonic” immune response.They used a modified mouse embryo, called […]

How to deal with gene editing that turns you into an alien

By David ShusterA genetic engineering technique called gene editing, or CRISPR, has been used to change a person’s genes to prevent them from developing certain types of cancer.The idea is that genetic changes in the body lead to changes in gene expression, making them more susceptible to cancer.But the technology is complex and there are […]
