During a break from reviewing grants for an upcoming study section, the lab and I went to hear Dr. Jennifer Doudna give a seminar. We use CRISPR-Cas9 extensively to modify the zebrafish genome, so seeing one of the scientists who discovered CRISPR and adapted it for targeted DNA modification in non-bacterial species…that will be something to tell my genetically engineered grandchildren about.
