New CRISPR Tech Could Cure Herpes

Cornell scientists developed a new type of gene-hacking technology that acts like a DNA "shredder." It could be used to cure diseases like herpes.

Hunter-Seeker Gene hacking techniques that were recently used in human cells for the first time could someday let doctors shred up and destroy viruses like herpes or hepatitis B inside human cells, scientists say. The new technique is called CRISPR-Cas3 — usually, when you hear about CRISPR tech, it’s the Cas9 variety — and Cornell researchers believe […]
