Are all gene drives constructed using CRISPR/Cas gene editing systems?

Category: Gene Drive Mechanisms

No. Functional gene drive technologies have been assembled and tested in the laboratory that do not use any components of CRISPR/Cas gene editing systems. Many do, however, and this is because CRISPR/Cas gives researchers and engineers an unprecedented ability to control the precision and species specificity of the technology. However, other strategies also can work.
