Researchers discover why the CRISPR gene editing system sometimes fails

“I was shocked that simply choosing one DNA strand over the other had such a powerful effect on genome editing,” says Ryan Clarke, lead author of the study. “Uncovering the mechanism behind this phenomenon helps us better understand how Cas9 interactions with the genome can cause some editing attempts to fail and that, when designing a genome editing experiment, we can use that understanding to our benefit.”
