Here’s a quick FAQ on the science behind #CRISPR and why the world is paying such close attention.
#CRISPR refers to unusual DNA sequences that help protect organisms by identifying threats – especially viruses – and attacking them.
Yes, that sounds a little ridiculous, but it’s actually a very accurate description when looking at the DNA sequences themselves.
It wasn’t until the early 2010s, however, that researchers began to get especially passionate about the potential behind #CRISPR.
The #CRISPR sequences steal key strands of DNA from the virus and keep them in those little Morse code messages.
