There are plenty of great scientific research stories out this week. Here’s a look at just a few of them.
CRISPR to Treat a Genetic Disease in Prenatal Mice
Researchers with Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania used CRISPR-Cas9 and base editor 3 to edit the genes of mice in utero to treat for a mouse model of hereditary tyrosinemia type 1, a lethal liver disease. They published their research in the journal Nature Medicine.
