The ability to edit genes within living cells and organisms at all levels, using tools like the well-known and powerful CRISPR-Cas9, is one of the most sophisticated and useful advances in modern biology. However, the technique has been limited by a myriad of safety concerns.

Now, scientists at the Salk Institute have developed a potential game changer in this field – a new gene editor called SATI (intercellular linearized Single homology Arm donor mediated intron-Targeting Integration). This tool addresses multiple limitations of existing gene editing platforms.

The study was published in the journal Cell Research on August 23, 2019. Read more …
