mRNA drugs. Giving your cells the recipe for the cure.

mRNA has been used to deliver functioning genetic code into cells that produces specific proteins. Researchers have found new ways to deliver such molecules and induce gene expression that could help or even treat diseases such as cancer.

All you need to know about gene editing.

Gene editing refers to the process of inserting, deleting or replacing bases in a DNA sequence of an organism. There are many techniques and technologies that enable gene editing and some newer ones like CRISPR have become very popular in the media. In this article i will describe of all the technologies used to edit genes.
