CRISPR gene editing

"Just a few years ago, molecular biologists hoping to alter the genome of their favorite organisms faced an arduous task and likely weeks of genetic tinkering. Today, those scientists can quickly destroy or edit a gene with a new technology called CRISPR (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeat)/Cas9. [...]It really opens up the genome of virtually every organism that’s been sequenced to be edited and engineereg." Overview @ PNAS
