Hexbyte Glen Cove New, reversible CRISPR method can control gene expression while leaving underlying DNA sequence unchanged

A new CRISPR method allows researchers to silence most genes in the human genome without altering the underlying DNA sequence -- and then reverse the changes.

While the system...
