These sequences, which proved to be part of a sophisticated immune system used by bacteria to fight viruses, give scientists an unprecedented opportunity to rewrite the code of life. Just a year ago, it was discovered that bacteria can be used to perform specific changes in the DNA of plants, animals, and people.

The molecular system known as Crispr has already made the production of genetically modified animals a much easier process. The first experimental results (more…)
