Long-term use of CRISPR gene editing could lead to the development of cancer.

There is a good chance that you are familiar with CRISPR if you have an interest in either medical or molecular biology (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats). It is a method of editing the genome that, at its most fundamental level, enables researchers to modify the function of genes and cut any genetic material they choose. There have been multiple methods developed for editing the genome, with the CRISPR-Cas9 gene scissors (CRISPR-associated protein 9) being the one that has seen the most widespread application. It has been shown to be useful in a wide variety of applications and shows promise in the treatment of a wide range of illnesses and infections. It appears to be quite effective, doesn't it? A recent study suggests, however, that this might not be the ...
