Nobel prize in chemistry goes to the pioneers of CRISPR gene editing


Of this year's winners of the Nobel Prize for chemistry for her work on a gene editing tool. French scientist Emmanuelle Charpentier and American biochemist Jennifer Tao DNA were awarded the Nobel Prize for developing a gene editing technique. Known as the Chris Burke has nine DNA snipping scissors. The technique means researchers can selectively disabled or change DNA in living cells. It has already contributed to new cancer therapies, and there is hope it can one day help cure inherited diseases. Has also been used to improve crop resilience. Elaine Cobb,
