CRISPR is a gene-editing technology that has revolutionized the field of cancer research by enabling scientists to make precise, targeted changes to the genome and study the role of individual genes in cancer development. It is being used to create personalized cancer therapies and to develop new treatments and animal models to test potential therapies. Through CRISPR, researchers are exploring how to best prevent and treat cancer, potentially leading to improved patient outcomes.
This article collection hopes to provide researchers with more information on these techniques and technologies, allowing them to further their research in this field.
