Targeting evolutionary conserved sequences circumvents the evolution of resistance in a viral gene drive against human cytomegalovirusM. Walter, R. Perrone and E. Verdin, bioRxiv, 2021.01.08.425902. 2021.
Here, we analyze in cell culture experiments the evolution of resistance in a gene drive against human cytomegalovirus. We report that after an initial invasion of the wildtype population, a drive-resistant population is positively selected over time and outcompetes gene drive ...
