  • In the wake of her recent Nobel Prize, Jennifer Doudna is up for more. In a talk with Future Human, she shares her ideas of how much more we can expect from CRISPR in the clinic. Among other visionary ideas, she thinks we will see a move from editing genomes to regulating them instead.

Nobel Prize

  • Even though you probably already know everything about CRISPR - the genome editing technology that was the cornerstone of this years' Nobel Prize in Chemistry - you might find it useful or at least entertaining to watch this animated video. It gives an excellent description of what CRISPR is all about and how researchers became aware of its tremendous potential.
  • The Nobel Prize is a hugely prestigious award, and many top researchers aspire for it. So it's no wonder that the internet has flourished with speculations about whether others than Emmanuelle Charpentier and Jennifer Doudna deserve a slice of the prize, e.g. Feng Zhang, Virginijus Siksnys, or Rodolphe Barrangou and Philippe Horvath. Read a brief description of who contributed with what in the Wire.
