According to the authors,”transgenerational transmission of metabolic disorders” may be associated with Mfn2 deficiency in the mother’s oocytes (immature eggs). Mfn2 refers to

    First CRISPR-Cas9-based gene drive cuts and duplicates hereditary components in Arabidopsis plants

    University of California San Diego scientists developed the first CRISPR/Cas9 based gene drive in plants. Their goal is to breed resilient crops that can withstand drought and diseases. Although gene drive technology for insects has been created to stop the spread and transmission of vector-borne diseases like Malaria, scientists in Professor Yunde Zha’s lab along
