Gene drive tested in mice – Expert Reaction

Science Media Centre,  Science Media Centre,  2019.

Using CRISPR genome editing, the researchers developed a process to make a gene more likely to be inherited than by chance alone. Their attempts with male mice were unsuccessful, but when it was used in females they increased the inheritance of the desired gene from 50 per cent to about 70 per cent, which they say might be enough for use in the lab.
