Gene Editing

Gene Editing

Genome or gene editing began as a way to explore the function and structure of DNA, the molecule that carries the genetic information of life. Scientists wanted to understand how DNA works , how it can be changed, and how it can be used to create new traits or correct defects. It was inspired by natural processes, such as the ability of some bacteria to cut and paste DNA, and by the development of tools, such as enzymes and proteins, that could target and modify specific DNA sequences.

How does gene editing work? (simplified)

Gene editing is like a molecular scissor that cuts DNA at specific spots. When we cut DNA, the cell's natural repair machinery kicks in. Think of it like fixing a torn page—sometimes it may not be perfect. There are two main ways cells fix these DNA cuts: one is like gluing the torn ends together (nonhomologous end joining or NHEJ), and the other is like replacing the torn part with a new piece of paper (homologous repair or HR).
