(Presseportal openBroadcast) - Resurrection of extinct animals, the ability to cure genetic diseases that have always been considered terminal, the chance to edit DNA… These options have always seemed fantastic and unreal. With the invention of the CRISPR DNA editing tool, these and other DNA-associated solutions may become not a myth, but reality.

CRISPR, which is deciphered as Clustered, Regularly Interspaced, Short Palindromic Repeats is a genetic phenomenon, which was initially discovered in different kinds of bacteria and archaea. This is a specific response of the immune system, which can be used to modify and edit the genes of more serious organisms. The developers of the system believe that if the researchers learn to use CRISPR tools to design genome editing, this can revolutionize the entire approach to the process of DNA modification and even change the history of science. This is what the experts tell about the CRISPR tool: “In less than four years, CRISPR has gained worldwide attention for its ability to target specific locations in the genetic code of any organism with just two elements – guide RNA and an enzyme called Cas9. Nowadays, the tool may be successfully applied in the process of genetic modification of crops, gene therapies of incurable diseases and production of innovative medications. These and other applications can make a tool a new trend in the world science”.

Apart from studying the benefits and characteristics of the CRISPR genome editing system, the researchers have also managed to develop a number of CRISPR tools, which are still cloud or web based. With these tools, gene modification and editing can become more effective and streamlined. That is why the CRISPR technology is considered the greatest opportunity of the 21st century.
